Flexible mobile mapping system
To maximize the use of your Routescene® UAV LiDAR solution and provide flexibility we have developed a Vehicle upgrade.
What’s in the package
The Vehicle upgrade includes the following component parts to transform the UAV LiDAR system into a completely operational Mobile Mapping System:
1. High resolution odometer
2. Firmware upgrades to support the input of external (GSM based) RTK corrections
3. GSM modem (excluding SIM card or subscriptions) for receiving RTK corrections
4. Roof rack mounted Vehicle frame, complete with advanced coiled suspension mounts
plus the UAV LiDAR system which includes:
5. workflow methodologies – a “how to” manual to get you operational as fast as possible
6. our powerful software LidarViewer® Pro to visualize, provide quality assurance and post-process your LidarPod® data
7. QA Monitor, a web based app, for immediate and continuous real-time in-flight data monitoring
10. training and technical support
Do I need a Ground Station?
For the Routescene Vehicle LidarPod® the Ground Station is optional as it depends on the most practical solution through which to receive the RTK GPS corrections: locally using the Routescene Ground Station, or via GPRS modem or satellite. Then there is always the option to post-process the position data and apply the
RTK GPS corrections after the survey has been completed. For vehicle surveys when a Routescene Ground Station is not used, QA Monitor can be directly accessed using a USB connection between a laptop and the LidarPod.
The internal firmware controls the sensors, parses the raw data and transmits data samples to the Routescene Ground Station, it also manages and monitors power consumption of the LidarPod.
We are continuously improving the LidarPod firmware which can include: adding new functionality, improving the user experience, and enhancing the performance. Firmware releases are available to customers with a maintenance and support contract. They are delivered electronically to enable updates to be undertaken in the field – this means no “return to manufacturer” to get the latest version.
The first year’s maintenance and support is included in the price of the Routescene UAV LiDAR solution. This ensures that you get the latest firmware and software releases as they become available. With this comes peace of mind, knowing that your investment in the Routescene UAV LiDAR solution will stay current and will not be superceded by later improved versions.
Training and technical support
Training for your operators is essential so you know how to get optimal results from your hardware and software. This way you achieve a quicker return on your investment. The 2 day training course covers the operation of the LidarPod, QA Monitor and LidarViewer.
Technical support for the first year is included when you purchase training.
The product is non-ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) rated so it is not subjected to export controls. The LidarPod® has been independently CE and FCC certified to ensure it is compliant to electrical and radio transmission standards.
