Dynamic lidar sensor integrated into UAV

September 8th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Teledyne Optech has announced that its new compact lidar sensor, the CL-90, is available for purchase through its first integration partnership with Lidar USA. The sensor features canopy penetration for good ground coverage, much higher downward point density for high-quality results in corridor/power line projects, long-range performance for productivity at UAS ceilings, and high data precision for tight-tolerance applications. For more than 20 years, Lidar USA has been building UAV sensor systems that meet the demands of a growing number of applications, optimising their customers’ investment. The company’s ability to support numerous industries with integration makes them a good partner for Teledyne Optech’s compact lidar sensors. Lidar USA’s products are used in surveying-related purposes from topo work to highways and land development, but also agricultural work for forestry and plant growth with applications in archaeology work as well. Teledyne Optech’s executive VP and GM, Michel Stanier, expressed his confidence in the Lidar USA’s integration expertise, saying that the company’s strong global market presence will provide a good platform to deploy the CL-90’s feature set into the UAV market.
