A step closer to miniature, survey grade LiDAR

A step closer to miniature, survey grade LiDAR

What is the difference between a low cost, hobby grade LiDAR and a much more expensive survey grade LiDAR? The short answer is that there are lots of differences. So the challenge becomes figuring out how to use the latest technology to achieve survey grade performance in a small, low cost package. Ideally, a LiDAR should have perfect performance so that exact distances and angles can be measured instantaneously. This […]

BVLOS drone flights could provide “significant benefits by enabling a safe, efficient and fast method of inspection,” the group said. “The […]
