Lidar Point Cloud (Experimental)

RadarSimPy is a radar simulation package built with python. Contact me if you are interested in this module.

RadarSimC is the ray tracing engine built with C++. It is capabile of generating the point cloud of a customized scene. This engine is integrated in RadarSimPy.

This ray tracing engine can be used to effective calculation the RCS of a target. It can also be used generate point cloud in a customized scene.

This notebook is available on my GitHub.

Create a Scene

A scene can be created from multiple .stl models.

In this example, 5 objects will be loaded:


Now, use dict to define a Lidar. It has 3 properties:

To generate the point cloud, we can simply use lidar_scene. It will create an numpy array of the point cloud.
