Get Started with Velodyne LiDAR Sensor Acquisition

Requirements and getting started information

Create a velodynelidar Object and Use Object Properties

You access the point cloud data using the velodynelidar object.

Read Point Clouds

You can read all available point clouds or read a subset that you select. You can specify number of point clouds to read and specify them as the latest or the oldest point clouds in the buffer using arguments of the read command.

Read and Compare Two Point Clouds from a LiDAR Sensor

This example shows how to acquire the oldest and newest point clouds from the buffer and display them to compare the images.
