Microdrones presents their first fully integrated LIDAR drone system, partnered with the industry-leading md4-1000. This UAV is built specifically for professional and commercial applications and use. LIDAR is known as the premier technology for geospatial data capture. This platform can be used in a range of different industries and applications, including mining, construction, environmental changes over time, forestry uses, gradient mapping and many more.
mdLiDAR1000 is a fully integrated system for producing 3D point clouds optimized for land surveying, construction, oil & gas, and mining applications.
mdLiDAR1000 consistently provides an accuracy of 6 cm (0.2 ft) when flown at 40 m (130 ft) at a speed of 3 m/s.
Microdrones has developed an end-to-end LiDAR solution combining a drone, a LiDAR payload, a fully integrated software workflow, and world class support to consistently provide quality deliverables.
Plan - simple mission planning using mdCockpit and user inputs the point density or flying height and drone sped.
Fly - fully automated mission execution and realtime mission monitoring using mdCockpit
Process - through georeferencing data processing using POSPac UAV and automated final point cloud processing using mdLiDAR processing software.
VIsualise - final point cloud in standard ASPRS LAS format usable in any GIS or CAD software environment
