LiDAR Training

Dates announced for 2022 – Introductory course, Wednesday 6 April – Integrators course, Tuesday 26 & Wednesday 27 April. Places are limited so book your place now.


Level Five Supplies has launched a range of specialist training courses for 2022, designed to complement our other services and accelerate the tricky early stages of integration.

Our one and two day courses offer the ideal combination of theory and practice, ensuring you develop a sound working knowledge of LiDAR hardware and software. Learn how to get started with generating, recording and interpreting point clouds for robotics, surveying and autonomous systems.  An exclusive opportunity to understand the fundamentals of digital 3D LiDAR technology with Level Five Supplies and expert course leader, Dr. Rebecca Bennett.

Delivered by Dr. Rebecca Bennett and the Level Five engineering team, our Introductory and Integrators courses are limited to 10 places, so early booking is essential.

The courses will be delivered at the British Motor Museum conference centre – lunch and refreshments are included, but overnight accommodation is NOT provided as part of the course fee.


Getting started with LiDAR 

Introductory course (one day) | Integrators course (two days)

– Book your place –

  • When: Wednesday 6 April 2022, 09:00-17:00
  • Where: British Motor Museum conference centre
  • Cost: £350 + VAT
  • Required: Laptop
  • Aimed at: Project Managers, Junior Technicians, non-technical analysts and consultants, decision-makers

What is LiDAR, how can it be used? What are its applications, limitations and industries? Our Course leaders will use market knowledge and a variety of LiDAR systems to demonstrate the technology and how it can generate useful spatial information for your applications. We’ll also touch on the skills needed to successfully deliver a project using LiDAR, including looking at how to select and evaluate hardware and datasheets, as well as the pitfalls you may encounter when the work begins.

Integrators

Analysing LiDAR data

– Book your place –

  • When: Tuesday 26 & Wednesday 27 April 2022 (intermediate), 09:00-17:00
  • Where: British Motor Museum conference centre
  • Cost: £1050 + VAT 
  • Required: Laptop and working knowledge of Python or C++, some experience with range finders or 2D lidars useful but not essential
  • Aimed at: Product engineers, Software engineers, Technicians, Developers, Technical Consultants and Researchers

Building on the Introductory course, the Integrators course will help develop practical skills to gather, interpret and analyse the accuracy and usefulness of 3D LiDAR data, primarily using high-resolution 3D LiDAR sensors made by Ouster. Creating point clouds, ensuring hardware and software connections between sensors and processing systems using Python / ROS and C++, attendees will prepare themselves to use LiDAR in integrated products, research, and projects.

Delivered again by Dr. Rebecca Bennett – a leading expert in LiDAR point cloud processing, the training will require a reasonable level of technical skills – so attendees should be prepared with a knowledge of Python and/or C++. Using your own laptop and a virtual ROS environment, you’ll interpret point cloud data and perform processing and some light Machine Learning techniques to generate results.

Following the course you will be able to:

  • Understand LiDAR spec sheets
  • Choose the best sensor for your project
  • Connect sensor and set up drivers on Linux, and use the manufacturer’s visualisation/capture tools
  • Run ROS wrapper to get the data from the sensor in real-time
  • Save LiDAR data to files
  • Develop Python code for data exploration using standard Python packages & visualise in web notebooks
  • Develop Python and C++ code in ROS and PCL (Point Cloud Library) to get useful results from real-time data in a robotics system
  • Conceptualise, develop and train AI / DNN code to work with point cloud data to run object detection/classification in 3D
