Cepton Introduces Lightweight 3D Lidar Sensing Solution for UAV Mapping

Cepton Technologies, a provider of 3D Lidar sensing solutions for automotive, industrial and mapping applications, has announced the SORA 200, a lightweight 3D Lidar sensor, that delivers long-range, high-resolution and low-cost mapping capabilities to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). To get the product to market, Cepton is partnering with Lidar USA, a total Lidar geospatial solutions company. “To meet the increasing demands of UAVs, Lidar sensors must be long-range, lightweight and high-resolution,” said Dr. Mark McCord, co-founder and VP of engineering at Cepton. “SORA 200 allows for highly efficient 3D map data production at increased altitudes and velocities in various environments....

Insitu Announces High Accuracy Photogrammetry for Aerial Surveys

Insitu has announced the successful integration of a 50-megapixel camera into its ScanEagle Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for delivering High Accuracy Photogrammetric (HAP) aerial imagery. This new capability is part of Insitu's INEXA Solutions, a comprehensive suite of remote sensing products and information delivery services for enterprise customers, particularly mining, oil and gas operations. The HAP-equipped ScanEagle remotely surveys broad areas quickly, accurately, and safely — due to ScanEagle's proven Beyond Visual Line of Sight performance and Insitu's specialized direct georeferencing system, combined with the accuracy of the carefully selected, purpose-built 50-megapixel aerial camera. Insitu has been a pioneer, performer,... (read more)

Essential Energy Use Innovative Technology to Manage Vegetation

Australian energy distributor Essential Energy has contracted NM Group to map, analyse and report on vegetation risks which could pose future safety and reliability issues across its overhead electricity network. The program will use innovative remote sensing and 3D modelling technologies around nearly 85,000km of powerline. This will enable improved prioritisation and planning of vegetation management activities around the powerline network. The project will use aerial LiDAR survey to collect and process data across an area of almost 160,000 km2, spread across regional and rural NSW. A range of powerful techniques turn network data into intelligent 3D models, facilitating precise... (read more)
