I’m new to Notch, but have a few years experience in Touchdesigner. I’d like to get a LIDAR sensor I have working with Notch, but I’m not sure if it’s possible in the existing scripting functionality. Does anyone have any experience importing java.net libraries and/or injecting arrays of values into Notch from an external source via java script? I’m thinking of buying a Notch license if it works for this use case, but figured I’d ask if this is even possible before I dive into purchasing a license since not being able to save is making it tough to test!
Which LIDAR sensor are you using?
Hi JP, I want to try to get my Hokuyo UTM-30LX-EW to work with notch directly - here’s the protocol it uses: https://www.hokuyo-aut.jp/dl/UTM-30LX-EW_Communication%20Protocol%20Specification.pdf
There’s also a sample visual studio project for a standalone receiver program, but you have to register to download it on that same site. Probably not directly useful either since it’s written in C++, but could be a good guide for porting it to notch somehow.
