YellowScan - Fly&Drive - Fly when you can. Drive when you must.

A multi-platform LiDAR for geospatial survey scanning from air to ground.

The Detail

The Fly & Drive is a versatile, land vehicle-mounted or UAV-mounted, mobile mapping system that combines high-resolution laser scanning and precise positioning to collect geo-referenced pointclouds.

  • Typ. Driving speed <50km/h (30mph)
  • System precision <10cm   (4”)
  • System accuracy  <5cm (2“)
  • Max range <200m (650 ft)
Easy swapping from land vehicle to UAV

The Fly & Drive car pod can be mounted to any land vehicle. The specially designed bracket allows for smooth and quick swapping from the car pod to any UAV.

Mobile mapping & aerial survey using the same LiDAR

The setup consists of:

  • A LiDAR unit + a car pod + adaptable bracket + GNSS antenna

The mobile mapping kit includes:

  • A 4-kg car pod for mobile mapping with 3 built-in suction cups, a wire rope vibration isolator system, a GNSS antenna, and a roof bar 
  • A wheel-mounted odometer to measure the distance driven to improve final trajectory data 
  • A specific dual-use dynamic model for mobile/UAV mapping 
  • An external power supply with a cable connected to the car cigarette lighter socket  
  • The LiveStation software for live visualization. Start the acquisition through the LiveStation without having to get out of the car.
Multi-scope mobile (ground) and UAV (airborne) mapping systems

The system can be rapidly deployed on off-road and on-road vehicles as well as on all types of UAV (multicopter, traditional, and VTOL fixed-wing). This flexibility allows you to expand your range of applications which will increase your return on investment and thereby decrease the system’s payback period.

Precision positioning using high-end GNSS and IMU coupled system

The YellowScan Surveyor Ultra integrates the Applanix APX-15 IMU, a high-performance Direct Georeferencing solution for improved efficiency and accuracy.

A high-frequency laser scanner for high point density

The new and improved second-generation Surveyor Ultra integrates Hesai’s XT32M2X scanner, ideally suited for high-speed and long-range needs due to its high-density specifications.
