The Hokuyo UBG-05LN Scanning Laser Obstacle Detection Sensor (EU) is a less expensive alternative to laser range finders in indoor environments. The UBG is a laser-based obstacle detection sensor that uses an area setting software to create a scanning zone for outputs to be triggered when an object comes within the scanning path. This Infrared Scanning Rangefinder is perfect for robotic applications but is not ideal for mapping.
The UBG-05LN is able to report obstacles from 100mm to 5000mm in a 180° arc (0.36° angular resolution). Its low power consumption, 24V 150ma, allows it to be used on battery operated platforms. It has some underlying similarities to the range finders but it is intended to be used as an obstacle detection sensor only. The UBG-05LN is not like the URG or UTM laser range finders that use the SCIP protocol for communication and the UBG-05LN cannot use the SCIP 1 or SCIP 2 commands.
