Lidar is a technology that produces incredibly useful data that can be used to measure the environment. It’s a key part of self-driving cars – and the applications go much further than that.
Serge Wich is in the Amazon using Lidar on drones to aid orang-utan conservation – the software can actually tell orang-utans alongside apart from other species. But where Lidar has the most promise is in the built environment. 3D modelling with Lidar solves so many problems organisation have with building metrics.
