Added Wireless and a case. Ver: 0.2

A project log for 360 Degree LIDAR-Lite Scanner

I took two LIDAR-Lite laser range finders and mounted them atop a 3D printed, 360 degree continuously rotating frame, to scan any area.

3D printed a full case to hold all the hardware required to run the scanner. It is now using a nRF24L01 to wirelessly transmit its data to a base station. The base station is simply a Netduino 2 with a second nRF24L01 transceiver and a serial to USB connection.

Here is a scan of the IT area at my office using this setup. I have it perched rather high in the room so I can get just the bounding area.

How do you get the initial angle from the stepper motor. Are you using an encoder or rotation sensing device

  Are you sure? yes | no
