Intel® RealSense™ LiDAR Camera L515
Introducing the world's smallest high‑resolution LiDAR depth camera.
First in the family
First in the family
Intel® is proud to introduce a revolutionary solid-state LiDAR depth technology designed for indoor applications. The first product in the new LiDAR depth family, the Intel RealSense LiDAR Camera L515 is perfect for applications that require depth data at high resolution and high accuracy.
Logistics and Measurement
The Intel RealSense LiDAR Camera L515 gives precise volumetric measurements of objects. Use the L515 on a handheld device or as part of an inventory management system for quickly counting objects on a shelf, or track every pallet that leaves your warehouse to make sure it's fully loaded with the right inventory.
Optimized for robotics
While all Intel RealSense Depth cameras are necessary components in an intelligent autonomous robotic solution, the Intel RealSense LiDAR camera L515 brings an additional level of precision and accuracy over its entire operational range. Quickly gauge complex objects, handle occlusion or objects behind others with ease for a new level of performance in bin picking or grasping.
With 3D scanning, one of the biggest challenges is edge fidelity - making sure that objects don't bleed into the background or each other. The Intel RealSense LiDAR Camera L515, has edge fidelity in a class of its own, combined with a quality FHD RGB camera and IMU for more robust handheld scanning solutions. Together these features make the L515 the best option for taking your 3D scanning to the next level.

Frequently Asked Questions
Intel® RealSense™ LiDAR Camera L515 is designed to function best from 0.25 to 9 m.
Infrared light from the sun can interfere with the performance of the device which can degrade the quality of the depth images when used outdoors. As a power efficient LiDAR camera, L515 will perform best indoors or in controlled lighting conditions.
Our onboard Intel RealSense Vision ASIC performs all the depth computations, which allows us to provide depth to numerous platforms at low power. The Intel RealSense SDK 2.0 is platform independent, with support for Windows, Linux, Android and MacOS. We also offer wrappers for many common platforms, languages and engines, including Python, ROS, C/C++, C#, Unity, Unreal, OpenNI and NodeJS, with more being added constantly.
The camera requires a USB-C 3.1 connection to provide power and transfer data during operation.
This camera is not currently available in module form. Please contact us for further discussion about your needs.
Multiple cameras can share the same field of view utilizing our hardware sync feature.
The L515 is the perfect product for any indoor application that requires accurate depth data in the range of 0.25-9 m. Typical use cases could be pick and place for warehouse robotics, volumetric measurement and room scanning.
