Pointclouds: A real-time model with thousands of measurements
The real value from lidar sensors come from the point cloud. A point cloud is a set of points that describe surfaces and objects. The points are created from the time it takes for a laser pulse to reflect on a surface, and since we know the speed of light, we have the distances. Thousands of points capture the environment and creates a real-time 3D model with outstanding spatial and structural reproduction.
