LightWare Optoelectronics was founded in 2011, with our expert team of engineers having over forty years’ experience in the design and manufacture of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) rangefinders. Our management and staff are dedicated to bringing quality products to market at an affordable price. 

LightWare produces microLiDAR™ sensors that use beams of laser light to measure distance, height, volume, and relative positioning. This provides essential sense and perception capability for applications in the world of Autonomy of Things (AoT) and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The many known LiDAR applications are for use on robotics, small unmanned ground and aerial vehicles (UAVs and UGVs), autonomous vehicles, distance measurement, level measurement and obstacle detection. 

In addition, with a growing number of businesses adopting IoT networks for smarter production and effective cost-cutting, LiDAR sensor technology has an important role to play. With LightWare LiDAR sensors characterized by small form, lightweight and low-power capabilities, our customers are increasingly benefitting from microLiDAR™ fitted IoT applications like Smart Parking and Smart Security.
