Python package to communicate with LiDAR devices of the Blickfeld GmbH.

Project description


The blickfeld-scanner-lib (BSL) is the interface for communicating with Blickfeld LiDAR devices.

There are some built-in functions, which provide basic functionality. For more advanced use, Protocol Buffers (protobuf) is required. Protocol Buffers is a language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured data.

The BSL uses, Protocol Buffers to communicate with the LiDAR device. The main communication features have corresponding functions in the BSL. For some of these functions, parameters packed into a Protocol Buffer object are required.


Follow the installation guide.


pip install blickfeld_scanner


sudo apt update
sudo apt install -y wget libprotobuf-dev libprotobuf17
sudo dpkg -i blickfeld-scanner-lib-dev-Linux.deb
