RedTail LiDAR reveals innovative 3D mapping tech

RedTail LiDAR Systems RTL-400 Drone
Innovative new 3D mapping tech is set to aid small drones in providing high-resolution images of objects on the ground from up to 400 feet. RedTail LiDAR Systems is set to unveil its innovative new mapping system that uses tech licenced from the US Army Research Laboratory. The system, named the RTL-400, utilises a microelectromechanical system (MEMS) mirror-based laser scanner to map out small objects from high altitudes by distributing laser pulses rapidly and accurately over the ground. The technology company, a division of 4D Tech Solutions, Inc., claims that the system boasts unprecedented resolution thanks to the laser pulse

Non-invasive UAV tackles concerns over ‘noisy’ drone deliveries

A start-up behind a nonintrusive tethered drone delivery system claims it has the solution to the safety and privacy concerns. A2Z’s founder, Aaron Zhang, will be on hand to show off its new tech at the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas, which it claims will help ease concerns surrounding delivery drones. The company’s tech involves using a tethered delivery mechanism that allows drones to maintain a safe hover height of 400 feet above the target before the delivery system controls its free-fall to the desired location. By keeping the drone itself at a safe distance, the company claims it
