Cepton unveils high-scan-rate, long-range SORA-P60L LiDAR for UAVs
Cepton Technologies unveiled the newest product in its SORA family of scanning LiDAR sensors, the Purpose-built to deliver long-range, high-resolution imaging for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the SORA-P60L features a 400 Hz frame rate, enabling drones to fly faster while maintaining high point cloud density. With a 550 g payload, the SORA-P60L prolongs UAV flight time, allowing more ground to be covered in a single trip. Cepton’s Micro-Motion Technology (MMT) faces all lasers downward at all times, providing a dense, uniform point cloud.
“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.”
