Dependencies

Install with PyPy: pip install Adafruit_CircuitPython_RPLIDAR This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Usage Example

import os
from math import floor
from adafruit_rplidar import RPLidar


# Setup the RPLidar
PORT_NAME = '/dev/ttyUSB0'
lidar = RPLidar(None, PORT_NAME, timeout=3)

# used to scale data to fit on the screen
max_distance = 0

def process_data(data):
    print(data)

scan_data = [0]*360

try:
#    print(lidar.get_info())
    for scan in lidar.iter_scans():
        for (_, angle, distance) in scan:
            scan_data[min([359, floor(angle)])] = distance
        process_data(scan_data)

except KeyboardInterrupt:
    print('Stopping.')
lidar.stop()
lidar.disconnect()
