Cepton Unveils High Scan Rate, Long-Range SORA-P60L LiDAR for UAVs

    Reading Time: 2 minutes

    New sensor provides industry-leading 400Hz scan rate for UAVs for
    advanced mapping and surveying

    Technologies, Inc.
    , a provider of 3D LiDAR solutions for automotive,
    industrial, security and mapping applications, today unveiled the newest
    product in its SORA family of scanning LiDAR sensors. Released at AUVSI
    Xponential 2019, the SORA-P60L is purpose-built to deliver long-range,
    high-resolution imaging for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

    The SORA-P60L stands out with its impressive 400 Hz frame rate, enabling
    drones to fly faster while maintaining high point cloud density. With a
    550 gram payload, the SORA-P60L prolongs UAV flight time allowing more
    ground to be covered in a single trip. Cepton’s unique Micro-Motion
    Technology (MMT™) faces all lasers downward at all times, providing a
    uniform point cloud that is over four times denser than other solutions.
    This, in combination with the high scan rate, makes the SORA-P60L the
    ideal solution for fixed wing and fast-moving rotary wing UAVs.

    “Cepton’s SORA-P60L leads the LiDAR industry with its best-in-class
    point cloud density that provides superior imaging for UAVs. With the
    affordable price point, long-range capabilities and high frame rate of
    SORA-P60L, UAVs can capture data faster and build more accurate maps,”
    said Neil Huntingdon, Cepton’s VP of Business Development. “SORA-P60L is
    our first product from the SORA family that we have unveiled this year.
    We see a lot of opportunities for this unique sensor in other markets
    and have a number of products in development that will be revealed later
    this year.”

    Cepton is exhibiting its LiDAR solutions at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 from
    April 30 to May 2 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Cepton will be showing
    attendees demos of the new SORA-P60L sensor in addition to demos of
    Cepton’s Vista-Edge™ LiDAR Evaluation Kit. Please visit our booth #4216
