Propelling: The Sky’s the Limit with LiDAR Technology

 

The LiDAR technology market’s expected growth is up to USD 2.2 billion by 2024, according to Markets & Markets. The adoption of Lidar systems in UAVs is a contributing factor to this expanding growth. Chuck Dorgan, Microdrone’s Director of Sales for the Americas, and Sebastien Long, Microdrone’s Canada & US Sales manager, shared their perspectives on the LiDAR boom with host Daniel Litwin.

“LiDAR sensors are getting smaller and smaller,” Long said, “And, worldwide, more and more companies are offering sensors.”

But with so many different LiDAR sensor products on the market, certain factors make a difference. The type of data gathered by the sensors and the LiDAR sensor workflow can be a product differentiator, Long said. And one of the issues Long often sees with so many choices is that a lot of first-time users don’t understand how to use the technology or make the right choice.

Microdrones has a customer care team in place to help clients out, something many other providers in this industry do not have. This piece of the LiDAR/UAV integration puzzle, both Long and Dorgan said, is essential for full product integration.

“We don’t want our clients to be left on the side after they purchased one of our systems,” Long said. “We want to be able to help them with any issue or question they may have.”

Because Microdrones owns their entire LiDAR workflow and created a complete, integrated solution, Dorgan said this helps early adopters and people new to the technology.

“The better the integration, the easier the workflow gets for every client,” Long said.

The workflow Microdrones provides helps clients achieve the results they want to get out of their UAV system.

With so much excitement around the possibilities of LiDAR technology, what does the future hold for the UAV industry? Long said sensors will get smaller and lighter, the software will improve, and Microdrones will be on the lookout for integrating the best of this technology as it becomes available.
