LiDAR in Da Hood Print E-mail
Written by Mike Olsen   
Friday, 16 September 2011

One of the things that I have learned in various teaching training workshops is to stretch yourself to do things that are out of your normal repertoire. 

So I thought I would share a LiDAR rap song I have been tinkering with (Someday, I might actually perform it!)  While giving a lecture on laser scanning, I caught myself off guard by the rhyming as I was describing LiDAR as a “time of flight” and “line of sight” technology.  I told the students that I was going to develop that into a rap song.  So here it goes:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LiDAR Rap V1.1

By M$lice

Dis is da LiDAR rap

To make da map

Without a gap

For yer App


LiDAR relies on Line of Sight

Using pulses of light,

But not too bright,

It calculates the Time of Flight

And can be done in da nite

Works from the ground or during da flight,

To give you da heightz,

But requires lots of bytes,

Objects in the way give you a blight,

But don’t have fright

You’ll learn how to avoid plight,

So it gits da job done right!

So you don’t have to fight

With data that can fit your control nice n tight!

So you can be proud

Of your point cloud!

Come on foo, get loud!

Stay tuned for a music video!
