Greetings from the AUVSI Xponential Convention in Chicago.

Each year we attend this conference just to see all of the developments from a large collection of manufactures in the unmanned industry. It includes, air, ground and maritime, but our focus is in the commercial drone sector. Here are a couple of interesting things we saw yesterday:

DJI Matrice Accessories
Check out the small LIDAR unit and the optical gas sensor attached to the gimbal ports of this Matrice 210. We are definitely seeing a lot of LIDAR this year at the convention and the optical gas sensor is something a lot of clients have been asking us about, The LIDAR is not made by DJI, but the gas sensor is.

Lighting Packages
We found these lighting solutions to be very good. We are working with the manufacturer to bring them to Florida Drone Supply. When used on a Matrice 210, they are controllable (power on and off as well as dimming) from the Pilot app - when put on another platform they can be controlled through the built in radio from up to 2000 feet away. The lights shown here provide enough light to read a book on the ground from 100 feet in the air.

We will post some more photos and other information when we get back to the hotel this evening. If you want us to check anything specific for you while we are here, just let us know.

Thanks!

Michael

We spent three days at AUVSI Chicago, still here. The Livox unit was built for self-driving cars (as depicted on their site livoxtech.com).

Were you able to get any specs from them re: PPM from various altitudes/speeds?

Yes - not impressive when compared to regular LIDAR. Depending on if you do a single or a triple array the points ranged from 100K - 300K. It must simply be 100K per unit. We grabbed their 6 or 8 page foldout brochure. I believe it had those specs there as well. I'll check at the office tomorrow.
