Abstract

The LIDAR-Equipped UAV’s Compact Drone is an innovative unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that combines the power of LIDAR technology with a lightweight and agile design. This abstract highlights the capabilities and potential applications of the compact drone, equipped with a LIDAR sensor, for precision data acquisition and advanced aerial mapping. The core feature of the LIDAR-Equipped UAV’s Compact Drone is its integration of a miniaturized LIDAR sensor, enabling high-precision distance measurements and three-dimensional point cloud generation. The drone’s lightweight and streamlined structure facilitate enhanced flight performance, making it ideal for maneuvering in tight spaces and complex environments.

Keywords: LIDAR, UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), Compact drone, Miniaturized LIDAR sensor, Precision data acquisition, 3D point cloud, Agile design.
