LiDAR at last: After numerous conversations with commercial UAVs end users who are currently deploying their UAVs for mapping and surveying purposes, one common request emerged when I asked them what they want to see for future platform capabilities – ‘we want LiDAR sensors on our UAVs!’

So imagine my joy when I discovered that Riegl, an Australian based laser scanning system provider, has surpassed current UAV sensor capabilities by releasing a world first in the form of a lightweight, survey-grade LiDAR sensor; purpose built for UAVs.

Has anyone else seen any cool new developments for UAVs?
