Inertial Labs RESEPI LiDAR Remote Sensing Platform

Inertial Labs has launched RESEPI (Remote Sensing Payload Instrument), a customizable remote sensing solution that produces highly accurate colorized point clouds for inspection and mapping applications. The low-SWaP (size, weight and power) system, weighing 0.37kg and consuming 4W of power (excepting the LiDAR scanner), is ideal for integration into UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and features an excellent price to performance ratio.

RESEPI has been designed to suit a wide variety of remote sensing projects with varying requirements, and allows Inertial Labs partners to label both the hardware and software components of the system with their own branding. Thanks to Inertial Labs’ optimized supply chain management and the ability to provide custom integrated solutions, businesses can focus on their core competencies without worrying about hardware or software development.

RESEPI features Inertial Labs’ high-performance Dual Antenna GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System (INS) with a dual use Novatel RTK/PPK GNSS receiver, integrated with a Linux-based processing platform. It supports in-flight RTCM corrections via embedded cellular modem for immediate RTK point cloud generation.

The system can be integrated with a range of leading LiDAR scanners such as those from Velodyne, Quanergy, Ouster, RIEGL, and Livox. It also supports RGB cameras such as the Sony A6000 or Blackfly FLIR, as well as thermal cameras, allowing users to combine photogrammetry with point cloud generation. Inertial Labs’ state-of-the-art INS produces highly accurate orientation and positioning data, resulting in extremely thin point clouds even at a high AGL.

RESEPI is provided with a highly automated software suite that features fully automated RTK LAS file generation, along with a one-click command line interface for post-processing and easy, rapid point-cloud generation.
