Compact Multipurpose Mobile Laser Scanning System

Craig Glennie and team of researchers have written a paper describing the results of initial tests on a new portable laser scanning system that can be used in a backpack or a hot air balloon. The system is small, self-contained, relatively inexpensive, and easy to deploy. Cost and production rate trade-offs place this system in the niche between existing airborne and tripod mounted LiDAR systems.

This could become a very important mobile LiDAR system.
