Event Description
Drexel's College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) would like to thank SICK, Inc. for providing LiDAR Sensors for Philly Codefest 2022.

LiDAR is an acronym of "light detection and ranging" or "laser imaging, detection, and ranging," and is sometimes called 3-D laser scanning (a special combination of 3-D scanning and laser scanning).

This free, virtual workshop will feature students from Drexel's College of Engineering who will walk us through how to use the LiDAR units and possible uses at Philly Codefest 2022.
