Improved range repeatability by >2x
Corrected encoder tick values for 20 Hz modes
Detection criteria changed based on more rigorous math increasing range ~10%
Add pps_pulse_width config_param, controls PPS output pulse width in 1 ms increments
Add initial error code reporting via `get_sensor_info`
Implemented PPS rate and angle modes
Improved IMU thread performance
Added new "enhanced near range LIDAR" mode (reduces min range to zero + other enhancements)
