Autonomous aerial mapping, inspection, and maintenance
Capturing terrain aerially enables covering large areas quickly and easily, even in complex or difficult to access environments. LiDAR-equipped UAVs are being deployed in a multitude of use cases, such as inspection or mapping in various industries. Thanks to their compact size, low weight, and low power consumption, Blickfeld LiDARs are perfectly suited for use in drones.

LiDAR in Drones: Keeping an eye on things
The inspection of wind turbines can be very labor intensive and therefore costly. Drones have allowed to significantly reduce the efforts for a safe and reliable inspection of the object’s structure and enabed remote maintenance by taking pictures of the turbines which serve as the basis for a state of the art safety inspection. LiDAR sensors support the autonomous flight and positioning of the drone in front of the turbine and thereby reduce the cost and the risk of inspection.
The characteristics of Blickfeld’s LiDAR sensors enable a host of different drone applications.
Inspection and predictive maintenance
Use a drone to gather the needed information out of flight
Use 3D LiDAR data for collision warning in an avoidance system
Map terrain by overflying it with a LiDAR-equipped drone
