ibeo Lux HD


Interface name
  • ibeo-lux-hd
Interface file
Supported Since
  • N/A
OEM Hardware/Software/Firmware Version  
Sensor Communication Protocol  
PolySync Sensor Type
  • 200
Driver Notes
  • SDF sensor configuration's serial number must match the sensor's serial number in order to validate
  • Use the '-s' driver command-line argument to parse the sensor's serial number
  • Requires a CAN connection when motion data is to be sent to the sensor for sensor-local motion corrections
  • For object detection sensors must set contour point density to closest point only by default, set by default in driver
  • For object detection sensors must set scan frequency to 12.5 Hz, set by default in driver

(OEM) Sensor Description

PolySync Configuration

  • Locate CAN hardware and circuit identifiers.
  • Copy these numbers into SDF configuration
  • Run driver

For more information check out the parsing sensor identifiers article.

Interface Requirements

Input Message Types

Input Msg Type
Native byte stream stored as ps_byte_stream_msg

Ethernet - TCP socket

Default IP: 192.168.0.X

Default port: 12002

Output Message Types

Output Msg Type
ps_lidar_point_stream_msg Lidar points
ps_object_stream_msg device detected objects
Native CAN message Used to send motion data to the sensor from the driver when enabled

Command Line Arguments

  1. -h show this help message [optional]
  2. -o enable output of log messages to stdout (in addition to syslog) [optional]
  3. -w disable the hardware interface(s), allowing the node to run without hardware connected [optional]
  4. -r SDF runtime configuration key that specifies the domain to operated under, the default domain is used otherwise [optional]
  5. -n SDF node configuration key for the node [required]
  6. -i use provided PAL interface file instead of what is stored in the SDF [optional]
  7. -e export a JSON support string describing the interface, used by the SDF configuration tool [optional]
  8. -t perform a validation test on the Ibeo LUX HD interface [optional]
  9. -a set Ibeo LUX HD device IP using provided address, power cycle to apply [optional]
