“We started looking at a broad range of different sensors including RADAR, LiDAR, and even cameras. Initially we used cameras for image detection on the tracks but in the end, we found that there was nothing that was quite as accurate as a LiDAR”. – Barry Carta, Co-founder, Kroy Railway Group
“We evaluated a variety of sensors. We did a study on sonar sensors and why they don’t work very well. We did it for LiDAR and we also did it for depth cameras. But you guys came up on top meeting all the requirements that we had”
– Michael Lawrence, CEO, True Autonomy
“We were completely blown away by both the SF30/D and the tablet app that was built for us in such a short period of time to really help us do what we do” – Richard Tennent, Pilot and conservationist, Flying for WildLife.
“There aren’t many options when it comes to small, lightweight LiDARs that work well over surfaces like water”
– Alexey Dobrovolskiy, CTO SPH Engineering
“We needed the best, smallest and most compact LiDAR out there”
– Clemens Riegler, ChairmanWüSpace e.V.
“The LiDAR is fantastic. The form factor is great, it’s super light, super small, easy to mount doesn’t take up a lot of real estate. The level of customer service that we’ve been receiving, that’s more important than anything.” – Dan Reed, Operations Manager, Skyfish
“The thing that we found most attractive about your LiDAR when we started using it was just their size and capabilities on our aircraft. I mean the LW20 is just 10 grams.” – Jack Elston, CEO, Black Swift Technologies LLC
“When you relying heavily on a piece of equipment, especially electronics, it’s really great to have a consistent person you can ask questions, who understands your project and is there to support you – and with whom you can build rapport.” – Gina Lonati, PhD Student, University of New Brunswick
“There are many cheaper and/or heavier LiDARs, the magic was to find a high performance LIDAR at a good price for the size/weight requirements that actually works for our airframe. Lightware LiDAR was the only company that ticked all these boxes.” – Robert Miller, Founder, The Eye Above
“LightWare LiDAR’s – they’re just really good LIDARs. And that’s really nice for us as when a customer buys them, they work. The hardware quality is good. Then on the Ardupilot software side, we get less support calls and that makes our lives easier.” – Randy Mackay, UAV Software Developer, ArduPilot
