Cepton Announces Long-Range LiDAR for UAVs
SORA-P60L Provides High Scan Rate LiDAR
Cepton Technologies, Inc., a provider of 3D LiDAR solutions for automotive, industrial, security and mapping applications, unveiled the SORA-P60L, a purpose-built scanner that delivers long-range, high-resolution imaging for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The SORA-P60L’s 400 Hz frame rate, enables drones to fly faster while maintaining high point cloud density, according to Cepton. With a 550 gram payload, the SORA-P60L prolongs UAV flight time allowing more ground to be covered in a single trip.
Cepton’s Micro-Motion Technology (MMT™) faces all lasers downward at all times, providing a uniform point cloud that is over four times denser than other solutions. The company says this, in combination with the high scan rate, makes the SORA-P60L ideal for fixed-wing and fast-moving rotary wing UAVs.
