Mojave LiDAR is available globally from DigiKey
PreAct Technologies (PreAct) has released its Mojave LiDAR, a high-performance, low-cost sensor solution to address a variety of applications.
These include smart cities, robotics, cargo monitoring, education & university research, building monitoring, patient monitoring, agricultural, and much more.
The PreAct Mojave LiDAR is distributed globally by DigiKey and Amazon.
“I am incredibly proud of our team for getting Mojave ready to be available to the mass market, and these distribution partnerships are a major milestone for our company,” said Paul Drysch, CEO of PreAct. “As more industries are discovering the power of LiDAR sensors to provide high quality data while also maintaining individual privacy, we knew we had to make Mojave as widely available as possible. Now anyone - not just large companies - can purchase the highest performing near-field sensor on the market and customise it for a wide variety of use cases. The availability of such powerful technology at an affordable price is a game changer.”
Introduced to the sensor market in August, PreAct says Mojave is the only flash LiDAR designed to meet the needs of non-automotive industries, as well as automotive applications. With its software-definable capabilities, depth accuracy error of less than 2%, and a single unit retail cost of $350, Mojave is the first truly mass-market LiDAR.
The LiDAR meets the stringent needs of sensors in robotics, agriculture and other industrial applications.
PreAct claims it has superior cliff and edge detection over any other sensor on the market, can provide over 1.4 million points per second of depth information and has the ability to detect floor slope and camber.
The LiDAR comes fully calibrated from the factory and both the software and firmware are upgradable, allowing companies to invest once in the hardware and continue to improve the sensor performance over time.
