Straight to the Point – LiDAR Application: Cross-Country Mapping for ZalaZONE Autonomous Vehicle Proving Ground

March 7th, 2024 4:00 PM (CET) 45 min YellowScan

The use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is now widespread, offering numerous applications, including mapping, when equipped with additional sensors like LiDAR. Drones’ flexibility and relatively low costs enable experts to swiftly and accurately map large areas.

These technologies offer various advantages, one of which is assisting in path planning for off-ground vehicles. In this webinar, Bálint Vanek from the Systems and Control Lab at HUN-REN SZTAKI will showcase an application developed in collaboration with colleagues from Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The presentation will cover:

– A review of the flight planning and data-capturing campaigns using a novel fixed-wing UAS platform for LiDAR (with the YellowScan Mapper+) and RGB data collection.

– An outline of the processing steps, from classification to Geographic Information System (GIS) analyses. These steps produce essential data for generating cross-country movement maps (CCM), crucial for determining ground vehicle trajectories across diverse field conditions.
