Solid State Design

Our unique flood light illumination eliminates moving parts making the micro LiDAR smaller and lighter than traditional laser scanning. As well, the LED emitter is perfectly safe for human eyes.

High Resolution

With 160 x 60 pixels per frame where each pixel gives accuracy of +/- 2% of the distance measured. Our micro drone LiDAR works independently of GPS so it captures distance in any environment.

Is LiDAR too big and heavy for your drone?

We get asked a lot with these questions: are there small LiDAR or compact LiDAR sensors on the market? Or, where to look for a cheap LiDAR? Can I have a Mavic LiDAR for several hundred bucks instead of thousands? It is difficult to answer. LiDARs are big, heavy and expensive for many reasons. However, not all the reasons are always valid, for example in confined space. For short range 3D sensing and imaging, LiDARs can be compact and lightweight for sure, like our SentinelPlus. It also enables task fulfilment with much smaller drones like Mavic Pro, or event Mavic Air.
Moreover, reviewing LiDAR data has been a pain for many users. It is usually difficult to review what you have recorded and chose the best parts for processing. Now, with VSemi's 3D player, you can playback the 3D point cloud like watching a video.
