The Hokuyo UTM-30LX is a scanning laser range finder with an extended sensing range out to 30 meters. Interface to the sensor is through USB 2.0 with an additional synchronous data line to indicate a full sweep. Scanning rate is 25 milliseconds across a 270° range. A 12 V power source is required.
Hokuyo UTM-30LX is the industry standard for long range 2-d laser range finders. Phenomenal build quality and performance.
This type of sensor has been successfully used on many autonomous ground vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles, SLAM self-mapping applications, etc.
MIT students have used this type of sensor to build self-navigating autonomous quadcopters: http://projects.csail.mit.edu/video/research/robo/ICRA_2010.mov
You can see the type of data it outputs here.
Detailed specifications, sample code and firmware updates are available from the manufacturer.
ROS drivers are available.
Data interface is via USB.
