Complex Corn Maze Demonstrates UAV-based LiDAR (via Point of Beginning)
For the general public, light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology is a new and exciting innovation that has increasingly been used for commercial, government, and scientific applications. The 3D images produced by a LiDAR system have changed the way individuals, businesses, researchers, and government regulators assess the world in which we live.
As the RedTail LiDAR Systems team prepared to launch the RTL-400, they looked for unique opportunities to demonstrate the product’s capabilities across a broad range of industries. The RTL-400, designed specifically for use on small drones, provides high-resolution, accurately geolocated images needed to make informed business decisions. Agriculture was identified as an important application.
