360 Degree Laser Scanner Development Kit (RPLIDAR)

Some years ago we were dreaming of a nice and cool and also precise way to map a room or the surroundings of a robot. Today it's coming affordable and available not only for high funded institutions but for all the hobbyists and robot builders.

Vendor list discussion

Great that we have a market place now on LMR. However, we might need to modify some small bits of it.

In my opinion we should hide the personal data (phone number, email, physical address) from the public and make a registration mandatory. It's ok to keep the buyers on the safe side but also the vendors need protection. First protection against spam, I am getting every day phone calls with intersting offers for insurances, finacial sevices etc. 

That's all for now...i hope we can get some other opinions. I will create an account there, that's for sure :-)

Do we want a LMR WhatsApp or WeChat group?

A while back I asked Frits what he would think about a WhatsApp or a WeChat group for LMR. 

Recent events about WhatsApp may change a lot but I guess that's a reasonable question if we want a 24/7 chat for LMR or not. The SB is ok for the use on a computer and the SB app is doing it's job as well but it's still not an optimal solution.

What I would like to read below is your opinion about that idea. Do we need a group and if yes, how we are going to do that?

LMR in Google

I am replying to the message Frits posted on the start page.

I did a qick check about the google presence and there is no sign of disappearance. I am sure it just had a small hickup due the website changing (owner) and/or registration.

As we all want LMR to be the #1 I am also putting links whereever I see fit. Please do the same but do not spam other forums, just place the link where you think it's appropriate.
