A cost-effective long range LiDAR sensor for 3D mapping, security, harsh industrial environments and other demanding situations. The M8 is capable of seeing day or night with no IR signature need, and works in any weather. Multiple laser beams and Time-of-Flight (TOF) depth perception result in 3D point clouds for spatial sensing. With a 360° field of view, 420,000 points per second, long measurement range, high accuracy, and fine resolution, this sensor is now available at a breakthrough price.


  • 8 detection layers
  • Wide Field of View (FOV)
  • Day and night vision; no IR heat-signature needed
  • Resistance to false returns caused by aerosols (dust, mist, rain, snow) 
  • PPS input signal to timestamp data and for synchronizing multiple sensors
  • Designed to eliminate cross talk from multiple sensors
  • Linux and Windows drivers for easy configuration, integration, and testing
  • ROS drivers
  • Development kits with a QPU (Quanergy Processing Unit) and visualization/data recording software for easy out-of-the-box operation
