PulsedLight of Bend has jjust passed the 50% mark in its goal of $53,000 for the LIDAR-Lite Optical Distance Measuring Device. For those that are interested in learning more about the technology PulsedLight is hosting a Google+ Hangout February 26th at 1100 PST.  For more information about the event go to
Dragon Innovation crowdfunding site hosts the LIDAR-Lite campaign. The interface is the familiar I2C. They use LED’s and laser device pulse sources to sense a target then use advanced algorithms to detect the returning pulse and calculate the distance. We see many uses for this device coupled to an Arduino. It is an amazing device that uses new technology and outperforms the existing devices many times over.

PulsedLight has just launched their first product on the crowdfunding web site "Dragon Innovation 
http://www.dragoninno...­ . More details are available at the crowd-funding web site, Please check this out and we are sure you will see some new an innovative uses for this new sensor device.

Bob Lewis and Dennis Corey started PulsedLight in Bend two years ago, at TechSpace. The founders of PulsedLight, recognized that there was an unmet need for an optical distance measurement sensor technology that addressed applications where a very small, low-power, high performance, reduced cost optical ranging sensor was required, such as robotics and UAVs. So in 2011 they co-founded PulsedLight, LLC in Bend, Oregon to bring their vision for a new optical ranging sensor technology to market.

Dennis says: “After more than two years of work, we are ready to introduce our technology in the form of the LIDAR-Lite a very small form factor, optical distance measurement sensor capable of measuring out to 40 meters using inexpensive, off-the-shelf, elector-optical components.”
