YellowScan, the Lightest All-In-One LiDAR System, Operates on Dozens of Different Aerial Vehicles

Montferrier-sur-Lez, France, September 14, 2015 – Since its commercial launch in 2014, YellowScan® has been used extensively on multiple UAV platforms in order to meet customer demands and various mission requirements. Thanks to its unmatched versatility and turnkey set-up, YellowScan® flew over numerous geographical and topographical regions, capturing high-precision geo-referenced land surface volumes and relief, even through vegetation.

Among the many aerial platforms being used we can name:
• UAV multirotors: Altigator’s OnyxStar FOX-C8HD, Oben’s Octocopter, Mikrokopter’s Oktokopter, Robokopter’s RKT04, AIR’s Readycopter, Airvision’s NT8.
• UAV gaz-powered helicopters: Yamaha Fazer, Survey Copter C4, Infotron’s IT180, NGF Geomatics’s Renegade
• UAV fixed wings: AJS’s Boreal.
• Manned Aircrafts: ICP’s Savannah 912, Hugues 300, Eurocopter’s Ecureuil.

Delivering highly accurate measurements in a very short time, the YellowScan® is used by surveyors and researchers all over the world for a variety of applications, including 3D cartography, topography, linear infrastructure maintenance, civil engineering, geology, mining, forest management, and archeology.

YellowScan® is a ready-to-use LiDAR, which is operational at up to 75 meters. It delivers a dense point cloud accurate to 10/15 centimeters.

This comprehensive solution includes a LiDAR scanner with a ±50 degree angle that measures 40,000 points per second, an Ellipse-E – the miniature inertial navigation systems from SPG Systems which helps obtain a clear and accurate point cloud – coupled with a centimeter-level Septentrio AsteRx-m RTK GPS chosen for its robustness, reliability, and low-power consumption, an on-board computer and an integrated battery.

Once mounted on the drone, the user has only to push the yellow button and YellowScan® is ready to survey. Once the flight is accomplished, the point cloud data recorded on a simple USB stick can be visualized in a few clicks thanks to the YellowScan software, before possible post treatment with any industry specific software like Terrasolid, AutoCAD, ESRI, etc.
