LiDAR in Space

A research team from NASA Ames is on Devon Island, Canada exploring the Haughton Crater with the goal of understanding how humans and robots can work better together. The K 10 robot is equipped with an Optech ILRIS – 3D laser scanner, which is capable of making 3D measurements with a precision of 5mm at 500 m.

It may not be Mars or the moon, but as the video demonstrates, it looks something like it. Truly an exciting research project.
