LIDAR board pressed into Play-Doh and ready to go under microscope
My wives microscope I got her for Christmas... Or Birthday... Not really sure, just glad I did! :)
Back side of lens assembly, I was amazed there are spots on the filter there, must not affect performance that much.
Same thing from a different angle. That flat black plastic piece pointing out above the reflective filter looks like it was scraped with something. Those are little plastic shavings still loosely attached. **EDIT** Thinking this over a little more what I believe Neato has done is make this opening fit the Panavision sensor EXACTLY. This ensures that even if the sensor is at a slight angle on the PCB, it will still be centered behind the lens. This is probably press fit into the plastic and then screwed/glued together.
Bottom of lens assembly that is screwed to the PCB below. Looks like Neato included some spots for set screws in the bottom that were not needed under the lens and laser module.
Board that the LIDAR mounts too with optical sensor on the bottom for rotation position.
