Industry-first smart 3D LiDAR combines high-performance sensing with advanced on-device processing.


Qb2 harnesses Blickfeld’s proprietary solid-state software-defined LiDAR technology. Setting a new industry standard, Qb2 seamlessly captures and processes high-resolution 3D LiDAR data — all within a single device

With its integrated compute module, Qb2 allows the Blickfeld perception software to run on the device, making it an all-in-one solution, reducing complexity and cost, and providing actionable data for various IoT applications. WiFi on the device removes the need for additional network cabling for fast and simple deployment with minimal investment.

Superior performance and software on-device

The Qb2 sensor supports 3 returns, a laser beam divergence of 0.25° x 0.25°, and delivers up to 400 scan lines per frame, ensuring outstanding point cloud quality for accurate and reliable 3D information. Combining this cutting edge LiDAR technology with a complete perception software stack that runs on device, the Qb2 delivers actionable results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choose the standard version if you require a small device footprint and weight and if the ambient temperature at the operating location is expected to not exceed 40 °C. If higher temperatures might occur, choose the Extended Temperature Range (ETR) version.

The Qb2 supports the IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WiFi standards in the 2.4 GHz band and the IEEE 802.11 n/ac WiFi standards in the 5 GHz band.

The antenna is not necessary for operating the sensor. It is only required when using the WiFi functionality. Please note that WiFi operation is only permitted with the Blickfeld-authorized antenna.
