Version

v2.1.3

Date

2021-10-22

Description

Version

v2.1.2

Date

2021-07-16

Description

Added
  • Add support for minor hardware revisions

Version

v2.1.1

Date

2021-06-21

Description

Added
  • Add configuration parameter signal_multiplier and its documentation

Removed
  • Remove deprecated TCP command set_data_dst_ip

  • Remove deprecated TCP command get_data_dst_ip

  • Remove deprecated TCP command set_udp_port_lidar

  • Remove deprecated TCP command set_udp_port_imu

  • Remove deprecated TCP command get_lidar_mode

  • Remove deprecated TCP command set_lidar_mode

  • Remove deprecated TCP command get_config_file_path

  • Remove deprecated TCP command set_auto_start_flag

  • Remove deprecated TCP command get_auto_start_flag

  • Remove deprecated TCP command get_watchdog_status

Changed
  • Fixed azimuth_window parameter logic behavior. Notable changes:

  • [0,0] now outputs only a single column instead of all columns.

  • [1,2] results in sensor startup failure and an alert because there are no valid output columns.

Version

v2.0.0

Date

2020-11-20

Description

Added
  • Add TCP command get_lidar_data_format.

  • Add in azimuth_window documentation.

  • Add in commands phase_lock_enable and phase_lock_offset and their documentation.

  • Add in verbose responses to parameter validation for TCP commands.

  • Add in command save_config_params which supersedes the deprecated command write_config_txt, which will be deleted in future firmware.

  • Add in command get_config_param active in favor of the deprecated command get_config_txt, which will be deleted in future firmware.

  • Add in new STANDBY and WARMUP statuses.

  • Add in parameter operating_mode in favor of the deprecated parameter auto_start_flag, which will be deleted in future firmware.

  • Add in parameter udp_dest in favor of the deprecated parameter udp_ip, which will be deleted in future firmware. This is to be consistent with the set_udp_dest_auto parameter and to reflect that valid values can be hostnames in addition to ip addresses.

  • Add in HTTP GET api/v1/diagnostic/dump endpoint.

Removed
  • Remove deprecated TCP command set_udp_ip.

Changed
  • TCP command get_beam_intrinsics now returns: 1) lidar_origin_to_beam_origin_mm, distance between the lidar origin and the beam origin in millimeters; and 2) beam altitude and azimuth angle arrays with padded zeros removed.

  • azimuth_window parameter now in terms of millidegrees and implemented CCW.

  • Deprecate api/v1/system/time/ HTTP API and its sub-APIs and replace with api/v1/time/

Version

v1.13.0

Date

Description

Added
  • Add TCP command set_udp_dest_auto

  • TCP command get_alerts, includes more descriptive errors for troubleshooting

Changes
  • Packet Status now called Azimuth Data Block Status and is calculated differently

  • Packets with bad CRC are now dropped upstream and replaced with 0 padded packets to ensure all packets are sent for each frame.

  • Return format of TCP command get_time_info updated

Removed
  • Removed reference to window_rejection_enable

Version

v1.12.0

Date

Description

Changes
  • Corrected IMU axis directions to match Sensor Coordinate Frame.
