AutonomouStuff has Signed an Agreement to Exclusively Provide SICK Laser Scanners
For Immediate Release Washington, IL USA. October 2012
AutonomouStuff, a leader in supplying perception and other products related to autonomy, has entered into an exclusive agreement to distribute SICK laser measurement sensors (LMS) within Automotive, Space, and Military applications. This partnership allows AutonomouStuff to exclusively supply: LMS100, LMS111, LMS151 and TIM310 laser measurement sensors products.
Laser Measurement Technology (LMT) is an optical sensing technology which precisely measures the distance to, and/or other properties of a target by illuminating the target using pulses from a laser. The distance is precisely measured by recording the reflected pulse’s time-of-flight. These laser pulses are commonly bounced off a spinning mirror thousands of times per second therefore creating a “scan” of laser pulses.
LMT devices can be used for a wide range of applications acting as the “eyes” of the host platform. These devices detect both 2D and multi-dimensional contour data and can process information either externally or in the sensor itself. SICK LMS sensors are ideal for indoor and outdoor applications, including: path planning, obstacle avoidance, classification in traffic, and terrain mapping.
AutonomouStuff is the first of its kind in a rapidly increasing robotics and autonomous driving market. AutonomouStuff strives to research the latest product technologies to remain at the forefront of this exciting and innovative business segment. The consolidation of all the products is what will make AutonomouStuff the supplier of choice for the autonomous robotics markets.
Components supplied by AutonomouStuff include LIDAR, RADAR, VISION, GPS/IMU, Handheld and Rugged Computing. AutonomouStuff is continuously working to expand their offering to better support their customer requirements.
