Aeroscout´s team has conducted a new LiDAR survey on Power Lines.
Today’s network operators want to know if their power line masts are still in top condition as they should be. To be able to detect even slight distortions or bent structures of the masts, multiple scan lines have been flown over the mast to generate sufficient scan points on the structure. Having to combine these scan lines requires very accurate flight trajectory and LiDAR data. The trajectory was recorded with the new Honeywell HGuide n580, which delivers top quality position and orientation data needed for such a high accuracy job. The LiDAR data was generated with a Riegl VUX-1UAV scanner. The different colors in the picture show the different scan lines.
