The RPLIDAR A2 is a next generation low cost 360-degree 2D laser scanner (LIDAR) solution developed by SLAMTEC. It can take up to 8000 samples of laser ranging per second at high rotational speed. Equipped with SLAMTEC patented OPTMAG technology, it breaks the usual limitations of traditional LIDAR systems and can operate with stability for a long time. 

RPLIDAR A2M6 is the enhanced version of 2D laser range scanner(LIDAR). The system can perform a 2D 360-degree scan within an 18-meter range. The generated 2D point cloud data can be used in mapping, localisation and object/environment modelling.

The typical scanning frequency of the RPLIDAR A2 is 10hz (600rpm). Under this condition, the angular resolution will be 0.9°. And the actual scanning frequency can be freely adjusted within the 5-15hz range according to the requirements of users.

The RPLIDAR A2 adopts the low-cost laser triangulation measurement system developed by SLAMTEC, which makes the RPLIDAR A2 have excellent performance in all kinds of indoor environments and outdoor environments without direct sunlight exposure. Meanwhile, before leaving the factory, every RPLIDAR A2 has passed strict testing to ensure the laser output power meets the standards of FDA Class I.

The core of RPLIDAR A2 runs clockwise to perform a 360-degree omnidirectional laser range scanning for its surrounding environment and then generate an outline map for the environment.
