Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) instruments provide a fast and accurate way to track objects in 2 dimensions. V2_Lab's v2_max.sick.lms100 object for Max5 makes the SICK's Laser Measurement System LIDAR available inside Max.

A laser rangefinder is a device which uses a laser beam to determine the distance to a reflective object. SICK's Laser Measurement System (LMS) range of devices combines infrared laser rangefinder with a mechanically moving mirror and special optics to implement a LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) an optical remote sensing instrument that measures properties of scattered light to find range and/or other information of a distant target.

V2_Lab has developed a Max5 external object that provides a simple interface to the Laser Measurement System from Max5 programming environment. The object allows configuring operating mode of the device and passes in scan data as lists of numbers. To inspire the users the example patch demonstrates simple background / foreground segmentation and blob detection.

At the moment the object supports a single model of SICK's LIDARs LMS100, but we hope to add support for other models with time. (In fact, it probably supports the outdoor counterpart of the LMS100 LMS111, although we haven't tested it)
