Neato Xv11 Lidar For The Ezb4

is there a version that runs through the ezb4 controller?
running the lidar from the PC direct (using 3rd party controller) is fine for testing and learning but does nothing for making it mobile for a small robot.

Hi! I see you have tagged the EZ-Robot EZ-B v4 and asking about compatible 360 degree lidars. That controller isn't powerful enough for that functionality. Here's a list of EZB SBCs that can use one of Synthiam's supported lidar robot skills.

Atomic pi: https://synthiam.com/Support/Hardware/Atomic-Pi
Latte Panda: https://synthiam.com/Support/Hardware/LattePanda
Rock Pi X: https://synthiam.com/Support/Hardware/Rock-Pi-X (preferred)
Up Board: https://synthiam.com/Support/Hardware/Up-Board

You will find information about compatible EZB controllers and the positives/negatives of each in the Getting Started Guide under SUPPORT tab.

Oh and one more thing... Since some of these Lidar's work UART (serial), then you technically could connect a UART <-> Bluetooth adapter and configure it for the specified baudrate. That would actually work i think - providing a decent range. 

If you're comfortable with soldering a few wires (power, voltage regulator, signal to bluetooth) - it wouldn't be very difficult
