FLIGHTS Co., Ltd. The first free demonstration in Tohoku of the drone-mounted LiDAR “FLIGHTS SCAN” release d in August this year was held in Morioka City on December 1st.

The drone-equipped LiDAR “FLIGHTS SCAN” released in August this year will be held for the first time in Tohoku for free on December 1st in Morioka City.

We will demonstrate from data acquisition to point cloud generation with a drone-mounted LiDAR “FLIGHTS SCAN” that has a high-precision IMU and a 360-degree omnidirectional sensor. Please take a close look at the performance that is compatible with public surveys at about half the price of conventional products.
FLIGHTS Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Shuhei Togeshita, hereafter: FLIGHTS) will launch a drone-mounted LiDAR “FLIGHTS SCAN” in Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture from 13:00 on December 1, 2022 (Thursday). ” will be held. This demonstration will be held at Iwate Sokki Co., Ltd. (head office: Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture, President: Koichi Okanuma), co-sponsored by FLIGHTS. If you want to improve the productivity of your surveying work or expand the scope of your work by using a drone-mounted LiDAR that has performance comparable to conventional high-priced LiDARs but also has excellent cost performance, please take this opportunity. Please join us.

“FLIGHTS SCAN” is equipped with a high-performance IMU and a 360-degree omnidirectional sensor that satisfies various standards described in the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan’s “Public Survey Manual Using UAVs (Draft)”.
There have been drone-mounted LiDARs with high-performance IMUs and sensors, but they have not become common because the entire system costs tens of millions of yen. “FLIGHTS SCAN” is jointly developed with Inertial Labs, Inc., which has more than 20 years of experience in inertial system development. It has become possible to provide ■ About Inertial Labs
Inertial Labs develops and manufactures inertial systems such as IMUs and provides application services for a wide range of fields such as aerospace, autonomous driving, and defense. We have a track record of delivering products.

1. Equipped with a high-performance IMU for public surveying Equipped with a high-performance IMU that meets various standards described in the public survey manual (draft), it achieves excellent accuracy even in environments that do not support GPS.
Since the accumulation error of the IMU is gradual, it is possible to fly for a long time compared to conventional products.
2. Strong on steep slopes with 360-degree sensors
The sensor can be selected from “Hesai XT32” or “Hesai XT32 M2X”. Both sensors are 360-degree omnidirectional, with 640,000 irradiation points per second. A wide range of measurements can be taken at once, and high-precision data can be acquired without problems even on steep slopes.
Equipped with a multi-return function, it increases the possibility of obtaining necessary data even when there are obstacles such as vegetation from the sky to the ground surface.
3. Smart operation to maximize productivity
High-performance INS also have a significant impact on business productivity. The waiting time that occurs before every flight was about 5 minutes with conventional products, but with FLIGHTS SCAN it is only 30 seconds. In addition, long-term operation is possible because the accumulation of IMU errors is gradual. In addition, since there is little variation in the point cloud of the acquired data, the work time required for noise removal, etc. can be minimized. Lecturer Introduction/Comments

■ Lecturer’s comment
This will be the first Tohoku demonstration of the long-awaited “FLIGHTS SCAN”. We have handled various LiDAR products, but when we take a measurement with “FLIGHTS SCAN”, we are surprised by its overwhelming performance and ease of use. We, who are doing actual work every day, will tell you the real voice of the site.
It will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so we hope that you will be able to participate in the demonstration.
