LightWare LiDAR has released an article outlining some of the considerations users should take into account when selecting a suitable LiDAR system for a project. Falling costs have seen LiDAR systems become widely used in UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), UGV (unmanned ground vehicle), IoT (Internet of Things) and industrial applications.
The article covers:
- Applications for LiDAR in forestry, mining, IoT, agriculture and industry
- Close-, short- and long-range LiDAR usage
- 2D vs. 3D LiDAR
- Other aspects to consider, such as field of view, number of channels, detecting low reflectivity, points per second, and safety
