Any chance of adding polar plotting to the time and XY plots. I'm using a LIDAR on my robot for obstacle avoidance.

Thanks,

RoboBill

otherwise I'll just calc it out on an xy ploy :cry:

I finally got around to making a "polar plot".

My "eye" is a LIDAR Lite V2 mounted on a Alex Moss controlled gimbal motor. It works great and is only there so my robot won't run into anyone. Its main guidance is a POZYX system.

With robotic "what's around me" now affordable, having a REAL polar plot would be very useful. Hint Hint

Hi Bill, very nice work! Haha if only there was infinite time to work on all these interesting projects (and features).

Cheers
Phil
