OVERVIEW

The Hokuyo URG-04LX is a low cost, easy to integrate scanning laser rangefinder. With reasonable accuracy, good range, small size, light weight and low power, the URG-04LX is great for robotic and safety applications. An exmple of the Hokuyo sensor output is shown below. Our Hokuyo comparison blog post shows examples of the Hokiuyo output and the performance of various models.

 

The sensor is not powered through a USB connection. A stable power source at 5VDC and a current capacity of 1.5A is recommended. The sensor also includes necessary wiring hardware to interface to the sensor via a serial connection. Additional cables can be purchased if necessary.
