As part of DJI’s bid to drive the future of commercial drones at this year’s AirWorks, it has been investing directly in lidar technology through its open innovation program that incubated Livox Technology Company.
Livox’s new 498 grams lightweight Avia lidar sensor is compact, capable and able to be attached directly to the DJI Matrice 200 and Matrice 300 series drones to enable highly accurate 3D aerial mapping.
It features long-distance detection range up to 460 meters, high-density point clouds and supports up to three returns.
By bringing this affordable and scalable lidar solution to the skies, use cases will extend well beyond the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry and open new ways for public safety professionals, utility inspectors, and more to digitize their operations with the power of drone and lidar technology.
