The UTM-30LX-EW is a scanning laser rangefinder that that provides a sensing range to 30 meters with and ethernet interface and a 25 ms scanning rate across a 270° field of view. The UTM-30LX-EW has a protective housing with a rating of IP67, making it suitable for outdoor use. The Hokuyo lasers are compact and light, making them ideal for mounting on end effectors, aerial vehicles, or small mobile platforms.


  • Outdoor/indoor navigation and obstacle detection: Guide path planning for mobile robots and autonomous systems
  • Object positioning: control docking processes of AGVs, AGCs
  • Object Profiling: cargo containers, pallets for loading & unloading
  • Object measurement and detection: volume of packages, pallets, flow measurement of bulk materials
  • Area monitoring: building security and entrance ways
