Ranging 16000 Times per Second
The sample rate of LIDAR directly decides whether the robot can build map quickly and accurately.
RPLIDAR A3 improves the internal optical design and algorithm system to make the sample rate up
to 16000 times, which is much better than most competitors.
Comparison under different working conditions
25 Meters Range Radius
With algorithm optimization, the ranging radius of RPLIDAR A3 has been increased to 25 meters,
which means more environment outline information is to be collected
Indoor and Outdoor Availability
PLIDRA A3 supports to work under two modes alternatively: enhanced mode and outdoor mode .
In enhanced mode, RPLIDAR A3 works with the maximum ranging radius and sampling rate to realize
an optimistic mapping performance in indoor environments.
While in outdoor mode, RPLIDAR A3 works with a more reliable resistance to daylight interference.
It keeps its stable performance when detecting white and black objects.
360 Degree Omnidirectional Laser Range Scanning
The ranging core of RPLIDAR A3 runs clockwise to perform a 360 degree omnidirectional
laser range scanning for its surrounding environment and then generate an outline map
for the environment.
4 Centimeters Ultra-thin
With the carefully designed parts and internal mechanical system,
the RPLIDAR A3 keeps its exceptional performance within its 4-cm
thick compact size. It is ideal for all kinds of service robots.
Brushless Motor, Low Noise, New Non-contact Drive
Compared with the traditional belt drive mode, RPLIDAR A3 uses the
self-designed brushless motor to reduce the mechanical friction in running.
Therefore, the RPLIDAR A3 can run smoothly without any noise.
