Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) surveying solution enables quick and easy collection of detailed data on busy highway in Hungary
Velodyne Lidar, Inc. today announced that the YellowScan Surveyor from YellowScan has utilized Velodyne’s groundbreaking sensor technology to generate precise mapping data for an infrastructure construction project on one of Central Europe’s busiest roadways. YellowScan Surveyor, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) surveying system, improves upon previous time-intensive manual surveying processes by providing a more efficient method for collecting landscape data with increased precision and detail.
“YellowScan Surveyor is truly a turnkey solution for advanced applications such as highways, allowing organizations to avoid costly, dangerous manual surveys”
The project was conducted by Ventus-Tech using YellowScan Surveyor to collect data along a 47-kilometer segment of the M1 highway (E60, E65, E75) in northwestern Hungary. The data, gathered by 88 UAV flights over one month, enabled engineers to design a plan to expand the highway from 2+2 lanes to 3+3 lanes. YellowScan Surveyor includes Velodyne Lidar’s Puck™, a compact and versatile sensor that delivers a high-resolution surround view image to accurately measure and analyze any landscape.
“YellowScan Surveyor is truly a turnkey solution for advanced applications such as highways, allowing organizations to avoid costly, dangerous manual surveys,” said Pierre d’Hauteville, Principal, YellowScan. “Using Velodyne’s lidar technology allows us to provide the highest level of data accuracy, density, and produce real-time georeferenced point cloud data.”
