Upgrade to ARC Pro

ARC Early Access will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!


The LIDAR reference design simplifies the communication from the LIDAR and allows it easily interface to ARC. ARC then gives a visual representation of the data and starts mapping the area. We want to share these files with you so you can create your own!
