Kokyo Co., Ltd.
GreenValley International’s backpack-type LiDAR “DGC50” / Notice of rental service start
Kokyo Co., Ltd. (Representative Director: Kazuhiko Sumimura, Headquarters: Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture) is pleased to announce that the “optical product rental service” currently being provided Mobile 3D mapping system backpack type LiDAR manufactured by GreenValley International
“DGC50 (*2)” will be newly added to expand the service (*3). DGC50 measures the reflection time from an object by irradiating a pulsed laser beam, finds the distance to the object, acquires a real-time point cloud, and at the same time estimates its own position and creates an environment map. The LiDAR sensor has two directions, horizontal and vertical, so it can easily scan tall objects such as forests and buildings, and the RGB camera can accurately add color information. By giving absolute coordinates using GNSS, optimal information can be obtained for formulating evacuation plans for disaster prevention. When acquiring point clouds with other companies’ products, there were cases where errors occurred in self-position estimation in forests and mountainous areas with many slopes. . In addition to this “optical product rental service”, Kokyo Co., Ltd. offers “LaaS (Laser as a Service) ( *4)” is being developed. LaaS is a service that makes it possible to use the required product (number of units) at the required timing without purchasing or owning the product, and to satisfy the user’s laser demand.
