With the release of Pegasus:Two, the next generation of mobile mapping solution, Leica Geosystems is holding a contest.

The winner of this contest will receive free use of a Leica Geosystems’ Pegasus:Two mobile mapping system for six months plus $10,000 to spend on the project. The winner of the contest will be announced on Sept. 8.

The Pegasus:Two contest is a global contest, open to anyone who chooses to enter. Employees of any companies developing, producing or distributing mobile mapping products that are considered direct competitors of Leica Geosystems Group are not eligible to participate.


Contest
All participants must submit a detailed proposal and a project timeline no later than August 31. Projects entries must use all six cameras plus the two optional sky and rear view cameras. Participants must also utilise the external timing output and sync signal with an alternative sensor. Any type of additional sensor can be leveraged, from a thermal camera, to ground penetrating radar, sonar, or even a pollution monitor and most importantly, participants are encouraged to use their imagination.

The project must include one span of at least 200 km in a continuous data mission and cover over 20 days of data collection, however, the project must be completed within the six month period from the announcement of the winner on August 8, 2014. The Leica Pegasus:Two does not require a modified vehicle and can be mounted on any car, train, bus, boat: just about anything mobile object. Entry submissions must support the advancement of humanity and cannot be connected in any way to military conflicts or applications.
 

 “We are looking for creativity,” said Stuart Woods, vice president of mobile mapping for the Leica Geosystems Geospatial Division. “We want to see how far people can take our platform – the world has gotten smaller, but as human beings, we still have a lot to explore when it comes to measuring possibilities. StreetView is for Google, and Leica Geosystems equipment can do Streetview, but this is about measuring beyond Streetview – this is about acquiring large amounts of data and digesting that data – to bringing us one step further in making critical decisions, in real-time about our world – from transportation to infrastructure.”
