New Fully Integrated LiDAR Drone Solution from YellowScan and Acecore

This new LiDAR drone solution will combine the YellowScan Mapper and the Acecore Zoe quadcopter to offer highly accurate point cloud data and flight versatility in one package By Phoebe Grinter / 21 Jun 2021

YellowScan has teamed with Acecore Technologies to develop a completely integrated LiDAR drone solution that combines the YellowScan Mapper and Acecore Zoe quadcopter to offer best-in-class highly accurate point cloud data and flight versatility in one package.

This partnership marks the first time that the two companies have come together to create a solution of this type with system components configured to work together.

The YellowScan Mapper is a purely aerial LiDAR solution that is ideally flown at 70 meters above ground level. Although it is designed to fit most professional drones and comes with an integrated camera module, YellowScan and Acecore have worked together to configure Mapper to take full advantage of the Zoe platform. 

YellowScan Mapper is designed for general topography projects and is particularly suited for civil engineering, powerline, forestry and archeology missions. It seamlessly integrates with existing YellowScan software solutions, LiveStation and CloudStation, making it easy to live-stream pointcloud data while the system is flying, and comprehensively post-process, visualize and export survey data right after the flight.

The Acecore Zoe is a versatile quadcopter designed to perform in difficult conditions. 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 inertial measurement unit (IMU). The optional laser guided terrain following mode keeps Zoe at a constant height, ensuring a quality output throughout the survey area.

“Despite the fact that the Mapper is designed to be agnostic to the UAV it is mounted on, the opportunity to make sure that their Zoe drone and our Mapper LiDAR solution work seamlessly benefits our clients. Both companies have been around for a long time and that translates into a user experience that is second to none,” said Tristan Allouis, CTO, YellowScan.
