Lightweight and high-speed anti-collision system for drone and robot applications!
TeraRanger Tower Evo is a solid-state LiDAR system. With zero moving parts, the product offers increased robustness and silent operation, while the compact and lightweight design makes it ideal for fast-moving and lightweight robotic applications, both on the ground and airborne! TeraRanger Tower Evo is compatible with Pixhawk (APM) flight controllers. Choose between 4 versions with varying performance, including 4 or 8 detection zones.

Key product features
2 configurations: 4 or 8 active Time-of-Flight sensors modules
We’ve equipped a drone with our solid-state LiDAR, and asked our pilot to test its capabilities in an outdoor environment. The result? TeraRanger Tower Evo detects and avoids tree branches, leaves, metal structures and concrete surfaces - all in outdoor conditions with bright sunshine.
When the GPS turns off, TeraRanger Tower Evo is always on! See how static and moving obstacles are avoided indoors. Our infrared Time-of-Flight technology also works in low light and complete darkness. Interested? Watch the video!
When mounted on a ground or airborne robot, the simultaneous data point acquisition of 4 or 8 axes at high speed, coupled to the natural movement of the robot (both translations and rotations), ensures the capture of features and data points around the robot, with similar output to the laser scanners typically used in SLAM operations.
How can I use the device for drone anti-collision? Is it compatible with DJI autopilots?
The TeraRanger Tower Evo is used for collision avoidance on drones for indoor and outdoor use, but it is not compatible with DJI autopilots which are closed systems. However, TeraRanger Tower Evo is a plug and play solution for Pixhawk based autopilots running APM, from version 3.6 (development) onwards!
Does it come with a SLAM algorithm for drones?
We do not provide SLAM algorithms for drones. Our devices output data which you can feed into open source autopilots either in standard releases or development releases.
Are there blind spots between sensors?
As the angle between each sensor is 45°, there are "blind spots" when the system is stationary. However, when installed on a moving robot, the effects are negated by the movement. If the 'blind spots' are an issue for your application, multiple units can be placed at offset angles to eliminate them.
