Aurora Solar makes selling and designing solar faster and cheaper by using LIDAR data, computer-aided design, and computer vision

Aurora Solar, a solar design software company, has created SmartRoof, a tool that allows anyone to accurately and easily model residential and commercial sites for solar projects. SmartRoof intelligently infers the internal structure of a roof after a few clicks, reducing solar design time and difficulty significantly.

Using these models, Aurora can forecast how many solar panels will fit on a property, calculate how much energy they will produce, and predict how much money the installation would save a property owner.

Technology

SmartRoof technology is a solution that allows solar professionals to create a highly accurate 3D CAD model of a site in just a few minutes. Using these models, Aurora can forecast how many solar panels will fit on a property, calculate how much energy they will produce, and predict how much money the installation would save a property owner. Integrating LIDAR into the solar design process offers the prospect of faster and cheaper solar, with good accuracy.
