The design reminds me of the RP-LIDAR (http://www.robopeak.com/blog/?p=278).

Can you comment on expected uptime? E.g., if I begin to operate the sensor and do not stop, how long before the device may need to be rebooted?

I am motivated to ask because I noticed recently that after approximately 3 days of continuous operation of an RP-LIDAR that I have, the motor stopped and would not return to operation until after I cycled power. I plan to conduct a more thorough study of product lifetime and durability of the RP-LIDAR.
