What exactly is update rate of laser range finder and why is it so low? For example i was doing some research on laser range finder on https://www.mantech.co.za/Lightware.aspx site, and i found that update rate of laser range finder i want is only 32 readings per second. Does this means it only calculated range 32 times in one second?

People use a laser range finder to determine the distance to a target for archery or pistol or rifle firing. Or to find the distance to the next golf hole. Why would you need faster updates?

Correct.

The Lidar Lite V3 ranges at up to 500 Hz.

32 times a second is pretty fast I'd say... what application do you have that requires even faster readings?
Quality of answers is related to the quality of questions. Good questions will get good answers. Useless answers are a sign of a poor question.
