UAV

Professional-grade UAV technology has revolutionized surveying in the last decade. Fixed-wing or Multirotor solutions introduce speed, accuracy, and safety to quantitative surveying tasks around inaccessible or precarious job sites.

Both fixed-wing and multirotor solutions are available at Cansel with various purchase options. You can also engage our professional services team in a proof-of-concept exercise to use any of our UAV solutions on a real job. Both technologies can cover up to a square kilometre in 60 minutes and provide millions of points to complete your topographic analysis, volume calculation, as well as provide an environmental survey of your site.

Fixed-wing or multirotor?
Most fixed-wing drones available on the market will offer between one and two hours of flight time, compared to 30-45 minutes for quadcopters. Fixed-wing drones are therefore able to cover more area with one flight, thus allowing you to collect data on a large area (quarry, road, etc.) in a single flight. The multirotor system may require more missions to complete the same survey.

Multirotor and Versatility
With field-swappable payloads, multirotor offer the ability to go from one payload to another in minutes. There are also more available options for payloads on multirotor than on fixed-wing systems.
UAV-based LiDAR systems have gained popularity in the surveying industry because of their accuracy and reduced processing time. However, the biggest efficiency gain is the ability to penetrate vegetation to get readings on the original ground. The LiDAR solutions offered by Cansel provide a streamlined workflow to generate colourized, accurate point clouds - immediately after post-flight.

Zenmuse L1
Zenmuse L1
Instant clarity. Superior accuracy.

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. When used with Matrice 300 RTK and DJI Terra, the L1 forms a complete solution that gives you real-time 3D data throughout the day, efficiently capturing the details of complex structures and delivering highly accurate reconstructed models.

[1] Over 30 minutes, at a speed of 13 m/s, a flight altitude of 100 m, with a side overlap rate of 10%, point cloud density > 100 points/m2.
[2] The accuracy was measured after a 5-minute warm up, using Mapping Mission with Calibration Flight enabled in DJI Pilot, and with the RTK in FIX status. The relative altitude was set to 50 m, flight speed to 10 m/s, gimbal pitch to -90°, and each straight segment of the flight route was less than 1000 m. DJI Terra was used for post-processing.
[3] In operations with two or three returns, the point rate is 480,000 pts/s
