Gone are those days when heavy LIDAR sensors had to be carried on an aircraft. With the new compact lightweight devices that could be easily mounted on UAVs along with advanced photogrammetry software, image processing has become faster and better. Valuable data obtained from these images can then be used by various governments, organizations and business for effective decision making.
Of late the LiDAR sensors have also integrated optical altimeter technology that helps to determine more accurate distance measurements above ground level. All this is done in accordance to weight and size required to fit in a UAV. These sensors have not only given an impetus to the LiDAR technology, but has made them cost-effective for UAV manufacturers too.
With tough completion and more requirement of this technology by various sectors, manufacturers of UAV LiDAR sensors have grown leaps and bounds with new products flooding the market every now and then. Let’s have a look at some of the best UAV LiDAR sensors in the market (continue reading)
