LTI showcases the TruSense Laser Rangefinder Sensor at the AUVSI Xponential Show

The commercial drone market will grow from $541 million in 2016 to $17 billion by 2024, predicts Global Market Insights; making the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) a prosperous industry. This year at the AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018, brought all things unmanned to Denver, CO. Thousands of leaders and innovators from the UAV Industry and defense departments came together to share, discuss and gain insight on this technology that is being developed throughout the world.

Drones weren't the only things being shown off at this year's convention. This was a collaborative effort from all sectors of the UAV industry, including UAV insurance, fiber optic cables and sensors to microchips and market insights - everything you need to build your complete UAV system.

Laser Technology, Inc. (LTI), specializes in laser rangefinders and showcased our TruSense laser range finder sensors at the show. These sensors can go over a mile with high accuracy, which is why they are perfect for the UAV industry. It’s a small, lightweight, low-powered, long-range, high-accuracy sensor. Some people use only the distance, while some also use the energy return readings.

During an interview with GPS World at the show, Clint Cowan, LTI's Sensor Product Manager, discusses and demonstrates how the laser shows a value of energy return off of the target. "We have people for example who want to know about ice-lows, when they are flying over ice-lows, we get a specific integer return off of ice so our lasers can tell the difference between land and ice,” states Cowan.

Watch the interview on the TruSense demonstration below.
