Another way to explore the world – Fly & Drive

By Eric Van Rees - 11th September 2019 - 08:22

Mobile mapping is not a new concept. For a couple of years it has appeared on the geospatial market to increase street survey productivity.
YellowScan Fly & Drive is a combo that can-do mobile mapping & aerial survey using the same LiDAR (Surveyor or Surveyor Ultra). It combines high resolution laser scanning and precise positioning to collect georeferenced point clouds for a wide range of applications. This will move the user into another level of possibilities and productivity. The swap can be done in less than 5 minutes. It reduces project duration through fast implementation, collection and data analysis.
Fly & Drive can be rapidly deployed on road vehicles as well as on any types of UAVs (multirotor, helicopter, VTOL or traditional fixed-wing), expanding the range of applications and thereby hastening your return on investment.
Under the pod
Fly & Drive is an extension of our Surveyor and Surveyor Ultra, consisting in set of mobile mapping gear: a pod, an adaptable bracket and a GNSS antenna.
Fly when you can, Drive when you must
The possibility to switch the LiDAR system from UAVs to land vehicles and vice versa, allows the user to perfectly complement a top view acquisition of building roofs with a detailed façade survey. Or, in a light forest, a canopy and tree trunks survey.
It also allows to survey flight restricted areas, such as urban ares, power plant, refineries, … The main purpose of the point clouds you acquire with Fly & Drive are road, pipeline, renewable energy construction pre-survey or quarries in presence of vegetation.
As the swap is easy and fast to operate, both acquisitions can be done in 1 day.
