SimActive has announced the integration of its Correlator3D™ product into LiDAR systems for drones developed by LiDAR USA. Possible configurations include two side-by-side cameras that allow matching the footprint of the LiDAR sensor, a particularly useful setup for corridor mapping.
SimActive’s Correlator3D™ software is used for automatically registering the imagery with the LiDAR data. Once a perfect alignment has been achieved, the point clouds are colorized using the photos.
“The ability to directly use LiDAR as control for adjusting image positions really is a unique feature”, said Jeff Fagerman, CEO, LiDAR USA. “Correlator3D allows our clients to quickly combine LiDAR with data from multi-camera systems and produce high-quality outputs.”
