The Zenmuse L1 integrates a Livox LiDAR module, high-accuracy IMU and a 1-inch CMOS sensor into a RGB camera on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal. When used with the Matrice 300 RTK and DJI Terra, the L1 forms a complete solution that creates stunning 3D data of complex structures, tree canopies and more.
DJI Care Enterprise #
DJI Care Enterprise extends the DJI Factory Warranty of your Zenmuse L1, in accidental damage including water damage, collision or signal interference. Learn more about DJI Enterprise Care.
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.
The L1 is compatible with the M300 RTK. Before using, please upgrade the firmware of the drone and remote controller to the latest version.
The L1 currently supports only the Android version of the DJI Pilot App.
The camera requires a MicroSD card with Class 10 or higher transmission speed or rated UHS-1 , with up to 256 GB supported.
In Non-repetitive Scanning mode, the FOV is 70.4°x77.2°.
In Repetitive Scanning mode, the FOV is 70.4°x4.5°.
The maximum measuring range of the L1 is 190m@10%, 100klx ; 450m@80%, 0klx.
The recommended typical working height is 50m-120m.
The L1 provides three scanning frequencies: one/two returns: 80K/s, 160K/s, and 240K/s; three returns: 80K/s, 240K/s.
The L1 has two scanning modes: Non-repetitive Scanning mode and Repetitive Scanning mode.
The L1 supports 3 types of returns:
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;
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.
The L1 supports the following model reconstruction formats:Point cloud formats: PNTS, LAS, PLY, PCD and S3MB
The L1 currently supports Mapping, Linear Flight Mission, Oblique and Waypoint.
In typical operating scenarios, the IMU accuracy of the L1 is 0.025°(roll/pitch)/0.15°(yaw). 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.
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.
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.
The Lidar module of the L1 has active detection capability which can scan terrain to collect point clouds during nighttime or other low light conditions.
The LiDAR module of the L1 adopts an Advanced Frame Scanning mode. This ensures that all point clouds collected are valid point cloud data.
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.
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
