Geov8 2015 Presentation: Innovations in Integrated UAV Mobile Mapping Technologies

You may be more familiar with mobile mapping done from a moving automobile, but now we’re entering an era of new platforms and innovative remote sensing solutions. UAV mounted laser scanning is one example for low-altitude aerial mapping.

XactSense is on the leading edge of this new technology, integrating the Velodyne LIDAR VLP-16 “Puck” with their “MAX8″ UAV platform.

The new multi-laser puck builds on Velodyne’s reputation for small lightweight LIDAR and XactSense’s founder, Andy Trench, knows that this next-gen sensor is a game changer. Companies of all sizes can now afford to utilize this emergent drone technology. In anticipation of the low-cost laser’s release, XactSense designed a new adaptable folding 8-rotor UAV called the “MAX8.” This platform integrated the industry’s only electro-stabilized LIDAR gimbal with thermal and high-resolution cameras, vastly outperforming other systems we’ve seen in terms of features and flexibility. The resulting mapping drone is the lowest-cost option for people looking for more than just a photo or video from their UAV investment.
