About TF02 Lidar 

TF02 highly optimizes the energy system, product structure, fusion algorithm, and shell material so as to achieve a 22-meter-long range and a more stable ranging performance. Combining an innovative production process and multiple software and hardware optimizations, Benewake upgrades LiDAR truly to a consumer level and makes it applicable in numerous fields.

On the basis of many advantages of the last generation, it has been significantly improved and optimized in its energy system, product structure and algorithm, so that it can reach the range up to 22meters and a more stable ranging performance. Its enclosure is made from high-strength anticorrosive materials, which has improved its adaptability to outdoor severe environment. At the same time, due to innovative production technology and massive software and hardware optimization, the LiDAR has really reached the consumption level and been successfully applied to UAV, intelligent traffic, material level monitoring, intelligent parking lots and relevant other fields.

TF02 uses the phase method to realize its ranging function based on TOF (Time-of-Flight), namely the time-of-flight principle. Specifically, TF02 gives out modulated near infrared light, which will be reflected in case of obstacles; its sensor can calculate the phase difference produced by emission and reflection of the modulated infrared light and then convert such a difference into the distance away from the target object, so as to generate the depth information. As shown in the figure.
