SORA 200 delivers long-range, high-resolution and low-cost mapping capabilities to aerial or ground-based vehicles. Its lightweight design is ideal for UAVs or unmanned robots tasked with map development.
LIGHTWEIGHT: At 550 grams, the SORA 200 can be deployed in situations where payload size matters. Its lighter weight means longer trips with less need to stop for a refuel or recharge.
LONG-RANGE: With its 200 meters range, the SORA 200 allows unmanned vehicles to cover more ground and reduce the total amount of trips needed for map creation, directly translating into cost savings. For aerial applications, the SORA 200 allows drones to fly higher. The dual scanning lines allow for stronger LiDAR penetration for more accurate map building.
HIGH-RESOLUTION: With a 200 Hz frame rate, vehicles equipped with the SORA 200 can operate faster while maintaining high-quality map data collection.
