Review: Low cost YDLidar X4 sees 360º all around itself
The YDLidar X4 is a very affordable Lidar that is mainly intended for applications in robots. The software is targeted at Visual Studio 2010 and there are demo applications for Windows and Linux. All necessary libraries are freely available, of course. The Lidar measures 360 degrees around and detects obstacles from 12 cm to more than 10 meters.
