In Action

Vehicle Localization

Single VLP16 (Velodyne 16) is being used for map based localization in fusion with IMU/Wheel-Encoder and prior 3D map (build using pose graph SLAM). A step towards low-cost localization.

UAV LIDAR Mapping System

This video is an overview of the Phoenix Aerial AL3-16 LIDAR Mapping system. In this video, a DJI S1000 is used and for the demonstration, we flew over an over an open pit. You'll see how LIDAR can pick up points underneath vegetation vs Photogrammetry will only map tree canopy.

UAV Airborne Laser Scanning

First experiment with the Velodyne LIDAR 'Puck' mounted on a brushless gimbal on a Devourer X8 heavy-lift multi-rotor UAV.
