Montpellier, France and Uden, Netherlands – June 2nd, 2021 – YellowScan, a global leader and designer of next generation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) LiDAR solutions, announces a new product collaboration with Acecore Technologies the developer and manufacturer of professional grade UAVs for data collection and surveillance markets. This marks the first time that the two companies have come together to offer the market a completely integrated LiDAR/Drone solution configured to work together.
Unlike other YellowScan solutions, the YellowScan Mapper is a purely aerial LiDAR solution that is ideally flown at 70m above ground level. Although it is designed to fit most professional drones and comes with an integrated camera module, we have worked with Acecore to configure Mapper to take full advantage of the Zoe platform. YellowScan Mapper is ideal for general topography projects and is particularly suited for civil engineering, powerline, forestry and archeology missions. The YellowScan Mapper seamlessly integrates with existing YellowScan software solutions, LiveStation and CloudStation, making it easy to live stream your pointcloud data while the system is flying, and comprehensively post-process, visualize and export survey data right after your flight.
The Acecore Zoe is a highly versatile quadcopter, designed to perform in any circumstance. The hand-made carbon fiber drone will carry the YellowScan Mapper with its RGB camera module for 28 minutes continuously, taking only 90 seconds to ascend to 70 meters AGL and initialize the YellowScan Mapper’s IMU. The optional laser guided terrain following mode keeps Zoe at a constant height, ensuring a quality output throughout the survey area.
“Seeking partnership with YellowScan makes a lot of sense for us, it enables us to supply the worldwide market with true end-to-end LiDAR mapping solutions with an unmatched level of support and after sales service.” said Jorrit Linders, founder and CEO of Acecore Technologies
“Despite the fact that the Mapper is designed to be agnostic to the UAV it is mounted on, the opportunity that Acecore gave us to make sure that their Zoe drone and our Mapper LiDAR solution worked seamlessly together was a chance we could not pass up. Both companies have been around for a long time and that know how translates into a user experience that is second to none”, stated Tristan Allouis, CTO, YellowScan.
