The Zenmuse L1 has set a new benchmark for Lidar + RGB Aerial Surveying with the introduction of Lidar to the DJI Matrice 300 System. This new all in one gimbal solution integrates a Livox lidar module, a high-accuracy IMU as well as a clear, 1-inch CMOS sensor on a redesigned 3-axis stabilised gimbal. Combined with the DJI Matrice 300 RTK and DJI Terra, this combination forms a complete 360 solution that gives real-time 3D data throughout the day, efficiently capturing all the details of complex structures recreated in highly accurate models.

What is the surveying and mapping accuracy of the L1?

The vertical accuracy of the L1 can reach 5 cm and the horizontal accuracy can reach 10 cm.

Quick facts you need to know about the Zenmuse L1: 

▪ 240,000 pts/s is the Point Rate.

▪ 450m Detection Range with a 80% reflectivity and 0 klx.

▪ 3 Returns are supported with this gimbal.

▪ 2 km2 covered in a single flight


Exceptional and Unparralled

Efficiency & Accuracy

Generate true-colour point cloud models in real-time or acquire 2km2 of point cloud data in a single flight using the Livox frame Lidar module with 70 FOV and visible light camera with a 1-inch sensor.

In typical operating scenarios, the IMU accuracy of the L1 is 0.025°(roll/pitch)/0.15°(yaw). This means you will be able to render centimetre-accurate reconstructions thanks to its high-accuracy IMU, a vision sensor for positioning accuracy and incorporation of GNSS data.

Robust & Reliable

Ready To Go

The IP44 Rating allows the L1 to be operated in rainy or foggy environments. The Lidar modules active scanning method enables you to fly at night.

Easy Going

Point Cloud LiveView

Real-time point clouds provide immediate insights onsite, so operators are informed to make critical decisions quickly.

You can also verify fieldwork quality by checking point cloud data immediately after each flight.


Detailing Made Easy

Acquire and communicate critical dimensions on the point cloud model using measurements and annotations.


General FAQ

What is the protection level of the Zenmuse L1?

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.

What aircraft is the L1 compatible with? 

The L1 is compatible with the M300 RTK. Before using, please upgrade the firmware of the drone and remote controller to the latest version.

Which apps are compatible with the L1?

The L1 currently supports only the Android version of the DJI Pilot App.

Does the L1 require an SD Card?

The camera requires a MicroSD card with Class 10 or higher transmission speed or rated UHS-1 , with up to 256 GB supported.

Camera + Software

What is the field of view of the L1’s Lidar?

In Non-repetitive Scanning mode, the FOV is 70.4°x77.2°.
In Repetitive Scanning mode, the FOV is 70.4°x4.5°.

What is the maximum measuring range of the L1?

The maximum measuring range of the L1 is 190m@10%, 100klx ; 450m@80%, 0klx.
The recommended typical working height is 50m-120m.

What is the scanning frequency of the L1? 

The L1 provides three scanning frequencies: one/two returns: 80K/s, 160K/s, and 240K/s; three returns: 80K/s, 240K/s.

How many scanning modes does the L1 Have? 

The L1 has two scanning modes: Non-repetitive Scanning mode and Repetitive Scanning mode

How many returns does the L1 Support? 

The L1 supports 3 types of returns:
One return;
Two returns;
Three returns.

What does the L1’s Point Cloud LiveView do? 

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;

How does the L1 perform high-accuracy post-processed modelling? 

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.

Which model reconstruction formats does the L1 support? 

The L1 currently supports Mapping, Linear Flight Mission, Oblique and Waypoint.

What is the IMU Accuracy of the L1? 

In typical operating scenarios, the IMU accuracy of the L1 is 0.025°(roll/pitch)/0.15°(yaw)

What is the L1’s Auxiliary vision sensor used for? 

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.

What is the L1’s RGB camera used for? 

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.

What is the surveying and mapping accuracy of the L1?

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.

Can the L1 work at night? 

The Lidar module of the L1 has active detection capability which can scan terrain to collect point clouds during night-time or other low light conditions.

Which scanning mode does the L1’s lidar module adopt? 

The Lidar module of the L1 adopts an Advanced Frame Scanning mode. This ensures that all point clouds collected are valid point cloud data.

How efficient is the surveying and mapping operation of the L1? 

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.

What are the application scenarios of the Zenmuse L1? 

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

On which gimbal of the M300 RTK can the L1 be mounted? 

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.
