Feedback from Clients


After two months from the launching, here are some feedback we collected from our clients.


Client 1: Our recent project is a robot for agriculture use, so the sensors definitely need to be water and dust resistance. Benewake TFmini Plus is just match my need.


Client 2: My monitoring area is small and narrow. Compared with other solutions, TF mini Plus LiDAR has a narrow FOV. It would not detect the wall around the monitoring zone. The detection spot is small, so in my case, it gives me a more accuracy result.
