SPH Engineering announces the update of UgCS for UAV-based LIDAR mapping

Riga, Latvia – SPH Engineering announces the release of UgCS update, introducing LIDAR toolset to unlock the full potential of LIDARs making remote sensing most effective with no human errors. Key features include precise calibration, flight patterns for route planning, anti-shake turns, and constant line spacing and buffer.

UgCS LIDAR toolset allows to optimize time and cost-effectiveness at all stages of data collection and processing. At the flight planning stage time could be saved on mission planning with flight patterns and turns designed specifically for LIDAR surveys. At the flight stage one may acquire high-quality laser data with preset IMU initialization patterns and anti-shake LIDAR turns. During post-flight data analysis, the high accuracy of acquired data ensures getting desired results with one trip to the field and better data analysis.

‘We have received various requests from LIDAR producers and end-users to improve the accuracy of laser data collected with a UAV. We have invested in UgCS R&D to focus mainly on automated IMU calibration commands, automatic calculation of required line spacing and overlap; and prevention of sensor shaking. Trial flights over SPH Engineering’s in-house test range have confirmed UgCS LIDAR toolset capacity to support main LIDAR market players’, Alexei Yankelevich, head of software development at SPH Engineering, comments.

Based on the task, common application areas may include but not be limited to power line inspections, road inspections, construction, mining, archaeology, forestry.
