Today we rely on (and take for granted) a lot of amazing technological achievements that would’ve seemed like magic just a few decades ago. We can finish up a work document on our phone while traveling 500 miles per hour at 30,000 feet. And the USB-C charger you use to charge that phone? It has more computing power than the computers that helped astronauts go to the moon.
In the solar industry, LIDAR — planes (or drones) flying over vast areas of the country, bouncing laser beams off structures and the ground to determine their heights — is one of those things, and it has become one of the critical technologies installers rely on to generate accurate designs. In this blog we’re going to explain a bit more about how we use LIDAR at Aurora to help make your design process quicker and easier, and we’ll also share some exciting news about our updated LIDAR data.
