We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
For an interaction project I had to use the Sweep LIDAR of the company Scanse. There was a Java binding, but it was not directly compatible with Processing. So I decided to use the gained knowledge and create a library for it.
The library currently just works for MacOS because I don't have a Windows or Unix system to build the native Sweep libraries. If you would like to build it yourself, check out this github repository: github.com/scanse/sweep-sdk
Also it is still under development. Setting the frequency to another value then 500 Hz is currently not supported. But I have implemented some additional methods to convert the
SweepSample location into a processing compatible coordinate system.
Feel free to contribute your ideas, issues or PR: github.com/cansik/sweep-processing
The library itself can be downloaded through the contribution manager.
