Benefits of UAV LiDAR
LiDAR is a method of remote sensing that uses pulses of light beams from a laser to measure distances between the sensor and features on the earth. Combined with a powerful GPS, LiDAR delivers unmatched accuracy in acquiring height and location data of earth features.
X1 Aeronautics utilizes the AL3-16 LiDAR system, mounted to our custom-engineered 1300X8mr flight system, the safest and most reliable system available for commercial use in North America. Both natural and built environments can be precisely mapped with our aerial LiDAR system including such features as vegetation canopies and understorey, mining tailings ponds, and pipelines, to mention a few.
To date, our mobile LiDAR Mobile LIDAR has captured 100 - 462 PPM².
X1’s vehicle-mounted mobile LiDAR system provides a convenient alternative to our airborne LiDAR system, delivering precise survey data for highway mapping, roadside engineering, Asset and Inventory Assesment, Planning, Monitoring and Design Projects. Our mobile LiDAR solution overcomes the challenges of mapping linear features while operating from a vehicle greatly increases the safety of personnel and minimizes road closures; this provides a significant reduction in data acquisition time in the field and traffic management costs.
High relative and absolute accuracy
Integrated RTK base station means no need for GCP targets
Ideal for mapping previously inaccessible, featureless, or hostile environments
Rapid acquisition and processing
Up to 200ha covered in a single flight
Up to 45 minute flight times with maximum payload.
Extended flight durations result in increased safety and expedited project completion times
Competitors are currently limited to 12-14 minute flight times
Multiple returns for classification of canopy and understory
Improved data management
Multiple scans can be easily merged without loss of accuracy or data
Integrated geo-referenced orthoimagery
Many processes are automatic, requiring fewer human interactions and involvement
Instant high-density point cloud generation
50 - 1900 PPM²
A scan rate of up to 600k points/second
Real-time monitoring of point cloud at the ground station
Independence from weather and lighting conditions
Data collection independent of sun inclination and position
Can be flown under clouds and unaffected by shadows
Capable of safe project completion in winds up to 30km/hr and temperatures ranging from -15C to 50C
Significantly cheaper in many applications than traditional survey methods
Savings are especially notable when considering speed, accuracy, and density of the data collected
