Title: LASER RADAR SCANNING AND POSITIONING MECHANISMS FOR UAVS AND OTHER OBJECTS, AND ASSOCIATED SYSTEMS AND METHODS
Abstract:
An unmanned movable object (410) comprises a motion mechanism (426) that can be coupled between the main body (411) of an unmanned movable object (410) and the optoelectronic scanning module (450). The motion mechanism (426) can include, e.g., a spinning device (427) and a tilting device (428). The spinning device (427) can be operable to rotate the scanning module (450) relative to the main body (411) about a spin axis (402). The tilting device (428) can be operable, e.g., in response to a tilt angle input, to rotate the scanning module (450) about an additional axis (404) that is transverse to the spin axis (402). An unmanned movable object (410) includes an orientation sensor (412) installed on the main body (411) of the unmanned movable object (410). A controller (142) is configured to receive an orientation signal from the orientation sensor (412) and, based at least in part on the orientation signal, determine a tilt value for the tilt angle input for the tilting device (428) in the motion mechanism (426).
