C3 Drones & Robotics Partners with Nextcore
Australia September 19th 2022 – Australian drone and robotics solution provider C3 Drones and Robotics partners with Nextcore in an announcement. Nextcore hardware and software solutions are designed, tested and built in Australia making the system a rugged and cost-effective offering that can stand up to the rigours of a harsh Australian climate.
The Lumos series consists of two systems that can produce 30mm precision and 40mm accuracy at heights up to 120 metres AGL. The system will fit a DJI M300 as well as a broad range of other UAV systems. Weighing between 1.6kg and 1.9kg depending on the system you can produce some of the most precise and reliable data available.
Complimenting the Lumos lidar range Nextcore also offers the Chroma camera module. An additional parallel image capture device. Utilising next-generation GNSS hardware within the Lumos, the Chroma delivers precisely timed photogrammetry images for colourisation, photogrammetry and ortho mosaics while simultaneously capturing survey-grade LiDAR data.
In relation to software forget the problem of not knowing if the software will work, what it costs and what it can do. The Nextcore Fusion proprietary software platform is the simplest LiDAR processing available. In just a few clicks you can select flight lines and desired point density, select your favourite projections and geoids and create a great-looking point cloud.
Lumos Vehicle Mount
For those who are also looking to maximise return on investment Nextcore has also brought to market the Lumos vehicle mount, a toolless mounting solution with high-quality multi-frequency GNSS antennas. This mounting solution increases the capabilities of geospatial teams beyond airborne scanning. This enables the completion of mobile mapping missions. Mounting to land-based vehicles is made easy with the inclusion of a set of articulated vacuum mounts, or the option to alternatively be bolted directly to roof racks if desired.
C3 Drones and Robotics is thrilled to partner with Nextcore which adds a robust Australian-built, tested and certified lidar system to its catalogue.
