Note: RPLIDAR A2M6 is discontinued now, we recommend RPLIDAR A2M8 as a suitable replacement.
The RPLIDAR A2M6 adopts the low cost laser triangulation measurement system developed by SLAMTEC, which makes the RPLIDAR A2 has excellent performance in all kinds of indoor environment and outdoor environment without direct sunlight exposure. Meanwhile, before leaving the factory, every RPLIDAR A2 has passed the strict testing to ensure the laser output power meet 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.
With the custom special parts and the carefully designed internal mechanical system, the RPLIDAR A2 keeps its
excellent performance while cut the thickness to only 4cm. It is ideal for all kinds of service robot.
The sample rate of LIDAR directly decides whether the robot can map quickly and accurately.
RPLIDAR improves the internal optical design and algorithm system to make the sample rate up to 8000 times, which is the highest in the current economical LIDAR industry.

360-degree laser range scanning
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.
Low Noise, Brushless Motor New Non-contact Drive
Compared with the traditional belt drive mode, RPLIDAR A2 uses the self-designed brushless motor to reduce the mechanical friction in running. Therefore, the RPLIDAR A2 can run smoothly without any noise.
18m/12m Range Radius
With algorithm optimization, RPLIDAR improves the range radius from 12 meters to 18 meters, which will provide more data due to a larger environmental outline map.
Design Most traditional non-solid LIDARs use slip ring to transfer power and data information, however, they only have thousands of hours of life due to mechanical wearing out. Slamtec has integrated the wireless power and optical communication technology to self-design the OPTMAG technology, which breakouts the life limitation of traditional LIDAR system. It fixes the electrical connection failure caused by the physical wearing out so as to prolong the life-span.
RPLIDAR A2 adopts laser triangulation ranging principle and with high-speed RPVision range engine, it measures distance data 8000 times per second and also has an excellent performance in a long distance.
Five years ultra-long life
With the brushless motor and OPTMAG technology, the RPLIDAR will work for 5 years(24 hours every day).
The Secret for a Freely Walking Robot
Matched solution for robot autonomous localization and navigation
RPLIDAR A2 as the core sensor, can quickly get the outline infomation of the environment.
Integrating the RPLIDAR A2 with SLAMWARE in robot, the robot can build maps,autonomously,find path in real time and avoid obstacles automatically.
Multi-point Touch and Man-machine Interaction
Compared with traditional technology, with infrared laser device, the RPLIDAR A2 can realize the multi-point touch on a super-large screen, which has a higher resolution, reacts quickly and resists ambient light.
