LIDAR-Lite v3 for detecting glass and semi-transparent objects

In building facade inspection, is LIDAR-Lite v3 able to measure the distance to glass facade, which is semi-transparent or would the LIDAR pulse penetrate through? Thanks

Hi Yuxin,

LIDAR-Lite v3 uses infrared to do its wizardry, which is good for most surfaces, but there are some exceptions. You can tweak the base configuration for the optimum balance between accuracy, range, and the time required to take measurements. Some experimentation is always needed if you’re not sure.
