Garmin LIDAR-Lite v4 (Qwiic) Hookup Guide
The new Garmin® LIDAR sensor is now easier to use, as a Qwiic device. The Garmin® LIDAR-Lite v4 (Qwiic), fuses the advanced measurement technology of Garmin®'s LIDAR-Lite v4 sensor with the simplicity of SparkFun's Qwiic connect system, for rapid prototyping.
The LIDAR sensor is ideal for drone, robot, IoT, or unmanned vehicle operations, with a range up to 10 meters and 1 cm resolution. Check out the video below for an overview of the product features.
The Qwiic LIDAR-Lite v4 does need a few additional items for you to get started. The RedBoard Qwiic will be used for the Arduino examples. You may already have a few of these items, including the required Qwiic cable, so feel free to modify your cart based on your needs. Additionally, there are also alternative parts options that are available as well (click button below to toggle options).
