by Hokuyo


The UST-10LX is a scanning laser rangefinder that provides range readings in a 2D field of view. The Hokuyo lasers are compact and light, making them ideal for mounting on end effectors, aerial vehicles, or small mobile platforms.


  • 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
