LiDAR (engl. Light Detection and Ranging) are very popular postition measurement systems and find their use espacially in autonomous systems. Due to the wide-ranging field of possible applications that LiDARs find their use there is a large variety of varations such as 1D, 2D or even 3D LiDAR. The range of measurement differs between 12 - 100 meters and a sampling rate up to 1kHz. The LiDAR are provided with different interfaces wich can be used for intergration into a variety of middlewares such as MATLAB, ROS or Pixhawk resulting in a contionously growing community.
