Main Product Characteristics

This product is based on the ToF (Time of Flight) principle and integrated with unique optical and electrical designs, so as to achieve stable, precise, high sensitivity, and high-speed distance detection.

TFmini-S is a milestone for Benewake to promote the process of low-cost LiDAR. With its unique optical, structural, and electronic designs, the product possesses 3 major advantages: low cost, tiny volume, and low power consumption. The built-in algorithm adapted to indoor and outdoor environments can guarantee excellent ranging performance at a low cost and in a tiny volume, which highly expands the application fields and scenarios of LiDAR and lays a solid foundation for future “eyes” in the smart era.

Typical Applications:

Robots Obstacle avoidance
Drones Anti-collision
UAV Terrain Following
UAV Height Fixing / Distance Keeping
Level Measurement
Tank / Bins Status Detection
Intelligent Parking
Crane Operations
Wheel Ahead Detection/Alert
Vehicle Position Sensing
Vehicle Detection for Barrier Gate Control
