New Hokuyo Laser Range Finders for Robotics

The Hokuyo scanning sensors are great 2D obstacle scanners. They can be used in fixed locations to detect if an object enters its scan area, and can be used on mobile platforms that need to do obstacle detection and avoidance as they move. There are two categories of sensors: outdoor sensors that have ranges up to 30 meters (or 80 meters), and are water resistant; and indoor sensors that are smaller/lighter and have higher precision.

In addition, these sensors are water resistant with a rating of IP65 (dust tight, water jets). The new UST sensors can be ordered on the RobotShop Canada and United States / International websites and will be available soon on the RobotShop Europe website.

Here is a quick guide to Hokuyo sensors:
  • UTM and UXM are outdoor series
  • URG, UBG, and UST are indoor series
  • LA and LX are object measurement models
  • LN are object detector models
  • EW and PW are tough models
  • UG is a USB-powered model
Depending on the model, communication is either USB, RS232, Ethernet, and/or simple digital input/output signals, and power input is 5V, 12V, 12/24V, 10-30V, or USB. See the full selection of Hokuyo sensors.
