LiDAR integration in UAV simulation in Simscape Multibody
6 views (last 30 days)
Can UAV LiDAR block be integrated in Simulink Simscape Multibody simulation for quadcopter? Can the block scan the imported CAD models in SimMechanics Explorer and return point cloud data? I couldn't find any material implying whether this is possible or not. Please advise me on alternative methods since I only know it's possible to attach a LiDAR to an UAV and scan the environment in the Unreal Engine plug-in.
Thank you very much!

There is no direct way to transfer models from Simscape into Unreal editor. But if you already have CAD models, you could consider import these CAD models directly into Unreal editor. Here are some links that might be helpful:
