Real-time LiDAR systems for UAVs are leveraged around the world for industrial and scientific applications, including surveying, civil engineering, archeology, and environmental science, requiring YellowScan’s ultra-compact 3D laser mapping solutions. By combining its LiveStation app with the unbeatable real-time 3D data capture capabilities of Velodyne’s VLP-16 Puck and VLP-16 Puck LITE sensors – both of which feature a 360° horizontal field-of-view (FoV), 100-meter range, and weighing in at just 830 grams and 590 grams, respectively – YellowScan delivers a turn-key Surveyor system that can be mounted to any drone for short-time data processing needs. The result is a real-time in-flight LiDAR monitoring platform, with users able to see how the final map is being generated in real-time during the drone mission, and the basic map datasets available immediately after the mission.

“YellowScan is known for its commitment to providing reliable and easy to use sensing solutions for the UAV industry, which make the VLP-16 Puck sensors an easy choice for the Surveyor system,” said Erich Smidt, Executive Director Europe, Velodyne LiDAR. “The VLP-16 Pucks are some of our newest offerings, with significant effort put into reducing weight while maintaining the resolution and reliability expected of Velodyne’s industry-leading LiDAR sensors.”

“YellowScan Surveyor, the turn-key LiDAR solution integrating Velodyne’s advanced VLP-16 sensor, enables mapping professionals to do more in less time thanks to tremendously high density and accurate measurements acquired from UAVs,” said Tristan Allouis, CTO, YellowScan.

YellowScan will showcase the Surveyor LiDAR system at the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas on October 24-26. The company will also host a standalone demo on October 27 from 10 am to 2 pm at the College of Southern Nevada in Henderson, Nevada, where participants will see what it’s like to launch and recover a UAV equipped with a YellowScan Surveyor. In addition, participants will see how the sensor covers the Area of Interest (AOI) via LiveStation and how to process the files post flight into a point cloud.
