Is LIDAR easy to use for hobbyists? DIY Roomba? Obstacle Avoidance System for Robotics

In this video we will have a closer look at a commercial LIDAR sensor for hobbyists. We will find out how the sensor manages to measure the distance to objects placed all around it and how we can use this data with a computer and an Arduino. At the end I will then create a small robot which uses the LIDAR system to “crudely” navigate through a room. Let’s get started!
