Hovermap ST-X Lidar

The Emesent Hovermap ST-X lidar is an excellent payload for creating detailed, accurate lidar point clouds.

Operation modes

Hovermap can interact with Astro as a passive payload, for mapping applications that can be flown with good GPS signal in open spaces with few obstacles.

Mapping with Hovermap

Hovermap can also use the lidar data of the environment around Astro, and build a 3D model in real time. It can use that data for obstacle avoidance, and even allow Astro to autonomously explore GPS-denied areas like under bridges and inside tunnels and mines.

Assisted/Autonomous Flight
