Abstract. In this paper, some experiments with the Quanergy M8 scanning LIDAR system are related. The distance measurement obtained with the Quanergy M8 can be influenced by different factors. Moreover, measurement errors can originate from different sources. The environment in which the measurements are performed has an influence (temperature, light, humidity, etc.). Errors can also arise from the system itself. Then, it is necessary to determine the influence of these parameters on the quality of the distance measurements. For this purpose different studies are presented and analyzed. First, we studied the temporal stability of the sensor by analyzing observations during time. Secondly, the assessment of the distance measurement quality has been conducted. The aim of this step is to detect systematic errors in measurements regarding the range. Differents series of measurements have been conducted : at different range and in diffrent conditions (indoor and outdoor). Finally, we studied the consistency between the differents beam of the LIDAR.
