In the process of achieving autonomous walking in robots, various sensors play a crucial role, including lidar, vision sensors, ultrasonic sensors, and more. Lidar, with its outstanding directionality and high focus, has become an indispensable sensor for perceiving the external environment of mobile robots. Simultaneously, it stands as one of the most stable localization technologies currently available.
With the continuous evolution of technology, obstacle avoidance capability has become a critical development area for robots. To achieve intelligent obstacle avoidance, various advanced sensors have emerged. This article will delve into the role of key sensors in enhancing robot navigation performance.
Lidar is widely used in the field of robotics and plays a key role in solving robots' autonomous positioning and navigation. When purchasing a lidar, paying attention to the following important parameters is the key to evaluating performance.
Lidar is one of the most common lidar sensors used in modern robots. Its main function is to detect the distribution of surrounding obstacles.According to the measured latitude, it can be divided into single-line radar and multi-line radar. According to the measurement principle, it can be divided into triangular ranging radar and TOF ranging radar. According to the working mode, it is divided into mechanical rotating radar and solid-state radar.
Multi-point interaction technology uses the perfect combination of hardware devices and software rendering to bring a new experience to human-computer interaction. In this field, SLAMTEC RPlidar S3 has become the key image acquisition hardware, providing reliable support for the smooth operation of multi-point interactive equipment.
In order to meet customers' demand for lidar products that combine range and high sensitivity with excellent cost performance, SLAMTEC leverages its technical advantages in triangular ranging & DTOF ranging to launch a new generation of fused DTOF radar products - RPLIDAR C1.
SLAMTEC RPLIDAR series lidar equipment is a powerful environmental perception tool. They support 360° scanning and ranging, and can accurately measure obstacles in the environment. Not only do they offer excellent quality and performance, they are also easy to use. They can be connected via a USB cable to a PC, Jetson NANO, Raspberry Pi and other microcontrollers, making them ideal for building lidar sensors in robots.
The Athena2.0 intelligent robot platform has always been loved by users for its excellent performance, reliability, and flexibility. However, in the growing market and evolving demands, users expect more. They expect superior performance, more customization options, and wider applicability. With that in mind, SLAMTEC conducted an in-depth analysis of market demand and finally, we introduced 2 upgraded models, Athena2.0 Pro and Athena2.0 Pro Max.
In today's rapidly evolving technology era, artificial intelligence is gradually permeating every aspect of our lives, bringing forth endless possibilities and convenience. SLAMTEC stands out the most in this wave of innovation, with our very own autonomous localization and navigation feature for our robot platforms has become its unique advantage. Whether it is in busy hotel lobbies, bustling corners of restaurants, or even in high-rise buildings, the SLAMTEC’s robot platforms can accurately and autonomously localize and navigate, achieving intelligent services. This technology has brought revolutionary transformation to various scenarios.
RPLIDAR S3 Equipped with SLAMTEC self-developed SL-Dtof technology In terms of ranging accuracy, anti-noise, and anti-smearing capabilities Stable performance, excellent ranging performance
RPlidar S1 is the first TOF lidar launched by SLAMTEC. It combines the characteristics of ultra-long distance measurement, small size and anti-glare, and brings a new breakthrough for robot positioning and mapping. The ranging radius is up to 40m, helping the robot to work in a wider scene. Regardless of the large underground parking lot or the large office environment, RPlidar S1 can work synchronously with SLAM 3.0 to easily complete the mapping, and the mapping performance is more powerful.
As an important part of the robot, the robot chassis carries the important functions of robot movement and navigation. Silan Technology's robot chassis has an open software and hardware interface, which provides developers with the convenience of custom development, saves time, energy and R&D costs, and helps products to be realized quickly and applications landed.
