Read, write, and visualize lidar data
Lidar readers process the raw data generated by lidar sensors. There are a wide variety of lidar sensors available in the industry, which generate lidar data in different formats. Lidar Toolbox™ currently supports reading data in the PLY, Velodyne® PCAP, PCD, LAS, LAZ, Ibeo, Ouster® and Hesai® PCAP sensor formats.
You can also stream data from Velodyne and Ouster sensors. For more information, see
Lidar Toolbox supports writing to PLY, PCD, LAS and LAZ sensor formats.
