The RESEPI Velodyne VLP-16 drone LiDAR payload from Inertial Labs, equipped with Velodyne’s VLP-16 LiDAR sensor, is a well-known staple in the industry. For years, the Velodyne VLP-16 has been known for its affordability and reliability. The sensor was a pioneer in the remote sensing industry. With its high accuracy and performance at lower altitudes, it will be a perfect fit for users that execute data collection with consistent flight parameters at lower altitudes.
RESEPI™ (Remote Sensing Payload Instrument) is a sensor-fusion platform designed for accuracy-focused remote sensing applications. RESEPI utilizes a high-performance Inertial Labs INS (GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System) with a tactical-grade IMU and a high-accuracy single or dual-antenna GNSS receiver, integrated with a Linux-based processing core and data-logging software. The platform also provides a WiFi interface, optional imaging module, and external cellular modem for RTCM corrections. RESEPI can be operated by a single hardware button or from a wirelessly connected device via a simple web interface.
The RESEPI Velodyne VLP-16 aerial LiDAR solution is a great fit for many applications such as utility mapping (power lines), construction volumetrics, site surveying, precision agriculture, forestry, and mining operations. It’s reliable vertical accuracy and low beam divergence of 0.17° (H), 0.09° (V) made it a suitable system to be selected for integration into the mapping and surveying solutions. This system has many different mounting options and can be used with mobile vehicles, DJI-supported drones (DJI M300, M600 Pro), custom drones, handheld platforms, vehicles, the Freefly Alta-X, and many more.
