DJI Zenmuse L1 Lidar

DJI Zenmuse L1 | Instant Clarity. Superior Accuracy.

DJI’s Matrice 300/350 drone series comes with a variety of attachable payloads, one of which is the DJI Zenmuse L1.

The main feature of this payload is its Lidar technology, which stands for Laser Imaging, Detection, and Ranging. More specifically, it is a method for measuring the distance to an object using laser by measuring the time it takes the reflected light to reach the receiver.

The Zenmuse L1 integrates a Livox Lidar module, a high-accuracy IMU, and a camera with a 1-inch CMOS on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal. It can cover up to 2 km2 in a single flight, and it has a detection range of 450 m.

The payload can operate in environments with temperatures ranging from -20°C to 50°C. The L1 payload can be used in many different applications, including but not limited to topographic mapping, architecture, engineering, construction, energy infrastructure and agriculture. For topographic mapping, the use of Lidar and drones can help improve the efficiency of current mapping methods through faster data collection and processing.

Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) is a broad field with many potential applications for Lidar. It can be used for monitoring, inspection, measuring, and modelling of different buildings or construction sites.

As for agricultural and forestry applications, the L1 payload can be used in natural resource management. Specifically, it can be used to monitor and collect data about forests, vegetation, and various water resources. It can detect growth variations, canopy differences and changes in leaf area index, which helps in identification and prevention of forest fires. As mentioned before, it can also be used to generate maps of the areas with the natural resources from surveyed data.

Overall, the L1 payload and its Lidar technology can be an asset to many different industries. Paired with M350 drone, users can acquire the benefits of combining drone technology with Lidar technology. For more information visit:
