LidarSwiss deploys Cepton lidar for high-fidelity mapping
Cepton announced that it is working with LidarSwiss Solutions GmbH to deploy its lidar technology in a drone-based mapping and analytics solution for infrastructure management and engineering design applications.
LidarSwiss is a Switzerland-based provider of high-performance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) based lidar solutions. Utilizing Cepton’s industry-leading Sora lidar sensor, its Nano P60 system provides high-fidelity mapping and real-time processing on the fly to serve engineers, forestry managers and urban planners across the globe.
To date, Nano P60 has been used to map and analyze powerlines, areas for site development, flood plains and highways in over twenty cities in Asia, Europe and Australia.
Nano P60 integrates Cepton’s Sora sensor with a high-precision IMU/GNSS unit and a high-resolution camera system. Its intelligent controller with LidarSwiss proprietary software automatically combines all raw data to generate high-density, high-precision RGB-attributed 3D laser point clouds during flight.
With a total weight of 2.1kg, this compact system can be mounted on small drones to produce mapping products such as digital orthophotos, digital elevation models and 3D models, or to interface with third-party software to enable easy, seamless solutions for all kinds of industrial applications, such as digital twins, smart cities and BIM.
