Now our RPLIDAR laser scanner supports two greatest opensource systems in the world: ROS and Arduino.
ROS is an open source operating system for Robotic applications. Its modular design (node) saves a lot efforts to build a new robot application. Arduino is an easy to use MCU development board, with Arduino, everyone can play with circuit now.
For ROS, we provide a driver node to help users integrate our RPLIDAR into their robots. It is available on our github: https://github.com/robopeak/rplidar_ros.
For Arduino, we made a driver library ready. Arduino users can use this library to fetch RPLIDAR data just as the standard RPLIDAR sdk does. Also, we provides related examples !
The library is included in our development kit SDK. You can find its source code at: https://github.com/robopeak/rplidar_arduino.
