LiDAR mapping

LiDAR, (light detection and ranging) is a remote-sensing technology that uses laser beams to measure precise distances and movement in an environment, in real time. It works on the same principles as radar (radio detection and ranging), a location system that is often used by ships and planes and sonar (sonic navigation and ranging), a system used by bats. All three technologies emit waves of energy to detect and track objects. The difference is that while radar uses microwaves and sonar uses sound waves, LiDAR uses reflected light, which can measure distance faster, with greater precision and higher resolution than either radar or sonar.
