Elevating high-precision aerial lidar mapping with TOPODRONE and Velodyne Lidar – sUAS Information – The Enterprise of Drones


Montreux, Switzerland – TOPODRONE, a Swiss based mostly designer and producer of high-precision lidar gear for set up on drones, automobiles and backpacks, has introduced the synchronization of LiDAR PRIME scanner and aOrion Heli-E UAV enabled by Velodyne’s Alpha Prime sensor. This new mapping answer fills the hole between heavyweight and costly manned aerial lidar methods and light-weight drone lidar methods. It permits customers to broaden their functions to survey giant areas that had been beforehand solely doable to survey utilizing manned airplanes or helicopters.

LiDAR PRIME is TOPODRONE’s most superior lidar system, with a working vary as much as 300 meters masking a 500-meter hall width and greater than 20 km2 per flight with the aOrion helicopter. LiDAR PRIME + aOrion Heli-E system is enabled by the Alpha Prime sensor, Velodyne’s world-class, long-range lidar sensor. ‘The system offers customers the chance to seize tens of kilometers of energy strains, dozens and even a whole lot of sq. kilometers of a surveying space when a handbook inspection, piloted helicopter or a multicopter deliver an excessive amount of danger, excessive bills, or cannot meet the problem’, Maxim Baklykov, CEO at TOPODRONE, explains. 

Velodyne’s lidar offers TOPODRONE the excellent high quality, working vary and capabilities for mapping options. The partnership with Velodyne has helped TOPODRONE to considerably improve the variety of merchandise for the surveying and mapping markets. TOPODRONE’s coming fashions based mostly on Velodyne’s sensors can proceed to assist present game-changing expertise for the market over the following 12 months.
