What is Position hold?

Need your UAV to fly at a specific safe distance from a particular object, or to hover in place at a certain height above ground? Our LightWare microLiDAR® sensors can be installed in either a downward-facing orientation and/or a forward-facing orientation to provide your UAV with this capability. Applied with great success in surveillance and the inspection of objects such as wind turbines and infrastructure, or for surveying in mining and agriculture.
We share knowledge:
Want to simplify converting inspection photos into a model?
For optimal performance several LiDAR sensors can be used on a single UAV: Record the distance to ground measurement for each photo taken while maintaining forward facing position hold for safety.
