Define a working area for a robot with cones

There is no translation available.

How to define a working area for a robot therefore we wrote a SLAM to detect cones on all corners of the area. We use a new generation of LIDAR, special made for robotic vehicles.
See how it works and visit our shop for more information about the Livox MID-360.
Cone localization (up to 30m) with arbitrary number of traffic cones at arbitrary places using a Livox Mid-360 LiDAR (360x59° FOV) In this owlRobotics project (, I'm using arbitrary traffic cones (as perimeter) to define a working area for a robot within 30m using a Livox Mid-360 LiDAR (360x59 FOV) on the robot. Uses LiDAR localization ( ) and cone detection. In this cone detection approach, we don't use any cone geometry. At 30m distance, the LiDAR would not be fast enough on a moving robot (5 Hz) to capture any geometry in a single frame. Here, we just use the cone reflectivity (1 point for each cone) to filter cones and constraints (surrounding points) to further filter the cones. The cool thing here is that the Livox non-repetitive scanning pattern always returns at least 1 point for each cone and this up to 30m.

We offer Livox MID-360 in oure online shop, here.
