Quantum-Systems introduces geomatics grade, high-speed scanning LiDAR payload

Quantum-Systems introduces geomatics grade, high-speed scanning LiDAR payload

The Qube 240 payload is a geomatics grade LiDAR scanner for the Trinity F90+ UAV and it endures up to 60 minutes of flight time with this combination.

Gilching, Germany, February 22nd, 2021 Light Ranging and Detection (LiDAR) sensors, partly traded as the key technology of the future for autonomous driving are also the first choice for highly productive survey tasks.

Until recently, LiDAR payloads were hardly affordable for SMEs due to their high cost. This is exactly where Quantum-Systems and YellowScan come in and offer a geomatics grade LiDAR scanner integrated into the payload compartment of the Trinity F90+ drone including software package without having to compromise on data quality.

A small and powerful LiDAR sensor for the Trinity F90+ UAS

The Qube 240 LiDAR sensor inherits the YellowScan Ultra Surveyor LiDAR scanner. This was the first integration into our Tron UAS platform in 2017. Advances in miniaturization and performance improvements across the board now increased range and accuracy with a significantly smaller form factor. This is impressively reflected in the cost reduction of over 50% for the overall system.

​A geomatics grade LiDAR solution from a single source

The Qube 240 LiDAR provides essential information for surveying and mapping by generating an accurate 3D image of the process environment through 240.000 distance measurements per second.
Oustanding absolute accuracy is achieved with the help of the integrated Applanix APX15 INS. One can speak of a geodetic accuracy that was previously only achievable with LiDAR Systems of the upper price segment. The easy handling and user-friendly integration will convince customers. Fast and easy processing of the raw data is an additional benefit.

The solution comes with YellowScan CloudStation software which is enclosed in an adapted variant with a 1-year subscription license.

Ideal applications for the usage on board UAVs are in the following application scenarios:

  • Power Line Surveying and Mapping
  • Forestry & Agricultural Surveying and Mapping
  • Mobile Surveying and Mapping

“The Qube 240 convinces professionals with 240,000 shots per second, for which up to three reflections are measured. The result impresses on the one hand with an extremely high point density with 50-100 points per square meter, and on the other hand with very good penetration of the vegetation. This way, the creation of digital terrain models under forest is also possible without any problems.

All in all, I do not know of any comparable solution worldwide, considering the weight, the performance, and the accuracy. We are especially pleased to be able to offer our customers a novelty for our Trinity F90+ UAS.”

CEO, Quantum-Systems GmbH

Features and availability of the Qube 240 LiDAR

The development and technical integration began in the second half of 2020 based on the cooperation with YellowScan. Which was already in years of existence. We achieved our goal to develop a geomatics-grade LiDAR sensor for our Trinity F90+ drone!

A payload with unique key data:

  • Geomatics Grade LiDAR
  • Class 1 (Eye Safe)
  • Wavelength: 905 nm
  • Maximum altitude: 140m AGL
  • Precision: 1.8-2.5 cm
  • Accuracy: < 3 cm
  • Scanner field of view: 70°
  • 240,000 shots per second
  • Point density @100m: 50-100 points/m²
  • Multi-echo technology: up to 3 echoes per shot
  • Applanix POSPacTM UAV, GNSS, and INS software for PPK
  • Qube 240 data processing software to generate survey-grade LAS Files.

“Impressive is the point density, even under vegetation and the low noise of the data. The sample data we collected so far also contains several GCPs some of which were covered with snow or are on loose ground and were measured two years ago. Nevertheless, one can see the extremely high accuracy of the system.

The balanced representation of the intensity values of the point cloud is also striking. These values are in any case better than the intensity values of comparable or even more expensive systems, like Velodyne PUK32 systems.”

Quantum-Systems donates 10000€ for the pediatric surgery departement of the Klinikum Ingolstadt

Quantum-Systems donates 10000€ for the pediatric surgery departement of the Klinikum Ingolstadt

Quantum-System donates 10,000 Euro to the pediatric surgery department of Klinikum Ingolstadt – delivered in proper style by a Trinity F90+ in reindeer look.

CEO Florian Seibel is delighted that after a very successful year with a tripling of revenue he can now give something back for a good cause and handed over the check to Micha Bahr, Director Department of Pediatric Surgery.

The money will be used to equip the playroom in a Corona-compatible way and to re-equip the waiting areaso that the children’s stay in hospital is made more pleasant. Quantum-Systems, Ingolstadt Hospital and Pfaffenhofen Hospital are working together on the MEDinTime project, which involves the rapid delivery of emergency drugs by drone between the two hospitals.

The MEDinTime project is part of the Urban-Air-Mobility (#UAM) initiative, which was started in Ingolstadt and has since become internationally established. Also, thanks to Reinhard Brandl (CSU), Member of the Bundestag, who is active and constantly supporting the initiative. By the way, half of the money comes from fees that employees pay for the use of the company’s car park. Quantum-Systems has rounded up the amount.

Webinar: A day in the field with the Trinity F90+

You use drones in a professional environment and are interested in our products? Take the chance and experience our Trinity F90+ UAV in (virtual) application.

We cordially invite you to our next webinar ” A day in the field with the Trinity F90+”.

Who is the intended audience?

Anyone who is interested in the functionality of the Trinity F90+ and its interaction with the iBase base station and wants to know what the typical workflow in the field looks like. From mission planning to flight execution and post-processing. Everybody who has always wanted to know what a typical day in the field with our Trinity F90+ looks like and how to get a result of outstanding accuracy (1.5 cm) with minimal effort and without the tedious laying out of GCPs is invited to our webinar “A day in the field with the Trinity F90+”.
 
 
Using a typical use case we will show all the necessary steps from mission planning to flight execution and post-processing to get a great result quickly and easily.
The example shows the survey of a clay pit near Munich on a day with rather unfavorable conditions. It was very windy and the clay pit could not be entered due to previous rainfall. In the immediate vicinity of the pit a wind turbine required special attention during flight planning. Nevertheless, using the Trinity F90+ and the iBase, a result was achieved that does not need to shy away from comparisons with results obtained under optimal conditions.
 
Due to the current situation with Covid-19 we cannot welcome you in person in order to demonstrate the advantages of the Trinity F90+ live. Instead we invite you to join us comfortably from your home or office on April 21st .at 15:00 CET on our challenging mission.
