Hovermap of the 64-m Parkes Telescope
by Phil Edwards (CASS)
The image above is a snapshot from a video made by members of the Autonomous Systems Laboratory of CSIRO's Data 61. The video is a fly-through of the point cloud generated by Hovermap, our UAV lidar mapping payload. The payload was flown on a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) around the 64-m Parkes Radio Telescope to map it in under 15 mins. The map is generated with our Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) algorithms as used for the team's hand-held unit, Zebedee. The full fly-through can be seen here.
