quote When do you go with lidar (L1) over photogrammetery (P1)? Lidar is particularly useful when you need to map/model environmental areas where there is vegetation that you need to 'see through' to measure the ground levels (surface contours) underneath. Lidar is also very good for modeling complex structures such as a truss bridge because photogrammetry struggles to get in and around the intricate parts of the bridge and also cant handle shadows very well. The L1 is DJI's first lidar sensor. It integrates a Livox Lidar module ("laser scanner"), an IMU, and a a 1-inch 20MP mechanical shutter camera (the X4S) for colorisation of your models. When used with Matrice 300 the L1 can give you real-time 3D data at a very competitive price point. quote

Editor's update:

1. Confirming the 1 inch 20MP CMOS camera on the L1 can be used for regular photo taking and photogrammetry missions. Camera performance is similar or a little bit better than X4S. 

2. The raw data captured by L1 needs to be proceeded by DJI Terra first. The .LAS file from Terra can be used for any third-party lidar processing software to get required format data.


Description:

The DJI Zenmuse L1 is a cost-efficient and easy to use enterprise aerial LiDAR payload, engineered for DJI's flagship commercial drone, the M300 RTK.


The L1 integrates a Livox sensor, high-precision IMU, a one-inch 20MP CMOS visual camera with mechanical shutter, and 3-axis stabilised gimbal system.


Combine it with the M300 RTK and the mapping software DJI Terra for a highly-efficient all-in-one aerial LiDAR solution to obtain 3D point clouds for high accuracy and detailed reconstruction.


The L1 can be used across a range of industry verticals, such as energy, AEC, forestry, public safety, and more.


The highlights of the L1 are:


• All-in-one Solution: Integrates a Lidar module, an RGB camera, and a high-accuracy IMU.

• High Accuracy: Vertical - 5cm; Horizontal - 10cm (with 50m flight height).

• Efficient: Cover 2km² in a single flight (flight velocity 10 m/s, flight height 100m, side overlap ratio 20%).

• High Density Point Cloud: 240,000 effective points/s.

• Support three returns (Dual and Triple returns to increase the point cloud density to up to 480,000 pts/sec).

• Measurement Range: 450m maximum (80% reflectivity 0 klx).

• Real-time Point Cloud View: Able to display and measure point clouds in real time.

• Weather Resistant: IP44 rating, enabling operators to collect data in rainy or foggy environments.

• DJI Ecosystem: Use DJI Terra for post-processing data.

L1 parameter setting recommendations and FAQ (pdf)

General
The L1 has an IP54 rating according to the IEC60529 standard. This means that it is protected against solid objects over 1mm in size and against water splashed from all directions. The protection level is not permanent however and will decrease over time due to device wear.
To ensure the highest levels of protection:
• Before installing, make sure that the interface and surface of the gimbal are dry;
• Before use, make sure that the gimbal is firmly installed on the drone and the SD card protective cap is clean, free of foreign objects, and closed;
• Before opening the SD card protective cap, wipe the surface of the drone clean.
The L1 is compatible with the M300 RTK. Before using, please upgrade the firmware of the drone and remote controller to the latest version.
The L1 currently supports only the Android version of the DJI Pilot App.
The camera requires a MicroSD card with Class 10 or higher transmission speed or rated UHS-1 , with up to 256 GB supported.
In Non-repetitive Scanning mode, the FOV is 70.4°x77.2°.
In Repetitive Scanning mode, the FOV is 70.4°x4.5°.
The maximum measuring range of the L1 is [email protected]%, 100klx ; [email protected]%, 0klx.
The recommended typical working height is 50m-120m.
The L1 provides three scanning frequencies: one/two returns: 80K/s, 160K/s, and 240K/s; three returns: 80K/s, 240K/s.
The L1 has two scanning modes: Non-repetitive Scanning mode and Repetitive Scanning mode.
The L1 supports 3 types of returns:
One return;
Two returns;
Three returns.
The L1 collects point cloud models based on RTK and displays the collected models on Pilot in real time.
The following features are supported:
· Rotating, dragging, zooming, quick switching of perspectives, and centering;
· Multiple coloring modes including RGB, reflectivity, elevation and distance;
For high-accuracy post-processed modeling, you can import the data from the SD card into DJI Terra with one click. This will generate a colorized point cloud model with high-accuracy PPK-IMU position and orientation calculation supported.
· The L1 supports the following model reconstruction formats:
· Point cloud formats: PNTS, LAS, PLY, PCD and S3MB;
The L1 currently supports Mapping, Linear Flight Mission, Oblique and Waypoint.
In typical operating scenarios, the IMU accuracy of the L1 is 0.025°(roll/pitch)/0.15°(yaw). The accuracy was measured under the following conditions in a DJI laboratory environment: after a 5-minute warm up, using Mapping Mission with Calibration Flight enabled in DJI Pilot, and with the RTK in FIX status. The relative altitude was set to 50 m, flight speed to 10 m/s, gimbal pitch to -90°, and each straight segment of the flight route was less than 1000 m. DJI Terra was used for post-processing.
The vision sensor provides altitude data. This means that if the GNSS signal temporarily fails, the aircraft's accuracy will not be affected for up to 60 seconds. Support coming soon.
The RGB camera of the L1 provides basic functions for taking photos and recording videos and provides real-time color information for the point cloud data during the scanning process. This allows the L1 to output true color point clouds and reality models.
Note that Lidar scanning and video recording cannot work simultaneously.
The vertical accuracy of the L1 can reach 5 cm and the horizontal accuracy can reach 10 cm. The accuracy was measured under the following conditions in a DJI laboratory environment: after a 5-minute warm up, using Mapping Mission with Calibration Flight enabled in DJI Pilot, and with the RTK in FIX status. The relative altitude was set to 50 m, flight speed to 10 m/s, gimbal pitch to -90°, and each straight segment of the flight route was less than 1000 m. DJI Terra was used for post-processing.
The Lidar module of the L1 has active detection capability which can scan terrain to collect point clouds during nighttime or other low light conditions.
The Lidar module of the L1 adopts an Advanced Frame Scanning mode. This ensures that all point clouds collected are valid point cloud data.
At a flight height of 100 m and a velocity of 13 m/s, a single flight with the M300 RTK and the L1 can collect data covering an area of 2 km2.
The L1 can be widely used in multiple scenarios including:
· Topographic surveying and mapping
· Power transmission line corridor modeling
· Emergency response surveying and mapping
· Detailed modeling
· Agriculture & forestry investigation
The L1 can be mounted on the right downward gimbal port (when facing the drone) of the M300 RTK. Currently, only suppot single gimbal mode.
