A good case in point is Robotic Research’s Pegasus Mini, which was unveiled at the CES 2020 show and profiled by Miriam McNabb in Drone Life. Pegasus Mini is a fully autonomous ground and air vehicle that excels in confined spaces and can traverse areas impossible for many other UAVs and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs).
The Drone Life story notes:
“This next generation of the Pegasus drone is football-sized, allowing a range of industries including public services, military and enterprise to bring camera equipment or rescue supplies into a wide variety of environments. It’s flexible, easy to deploy, and carries unique sensors. Also, at CES, Velodyne Lidar introduced their smallest sensor, the Velabit™ – perfect for use with the small form-factor Pegasus Mini.”
Small, lightweight lidar is positioned to be the catalyst for creating endless possibilities for new applications in a variety of industries.
