I am using a Hokuyo UST 10LX Lidar on my robot car. The Lidar in general work fine indoor in my garage. However, every time I drove the car outside, the blue light started to blink and no LiDAR signal came from the device. I have to reboot the Lidar. However, if I keep running the robot in my garage, it has not problem at all. The documents said blink lights meant the device went in to a malfunction state. Does any one know why and how to fix it?

UST 10LX is not designed for outdoor use.

If you are looking for a cheap substitute, I will suggest rplidar A3.

Thanks. Could you let me know where did you find this? Also, if it is early morning or evening, I should be able to run since there is no direct sunlight. Correct?
