GeoSlam Ltd. has made a real-time upgrade option available for the ZEB-REVO, its handheld mobile mapping system. Shown for the first time at SPAR 3D 2017, the optional upgrade consists of a revised data logger, capable of undertaking SLAM registration in real time. With its own integrated Wi-Fi, the results can be displayed live, as they are captured, on any Web browser enabled device, including smart phones and tablets.
“The data logger is compatible with all existing standard REVOs,” says Mark Reid, vice president of product management. “The continuous, fast pace of development at GeoSlam meant that it was important to continue our modular approach to ensure our customers have an easy upgrade path and can quickly access the latest developments.”
The real-time upgrade for ZEB-REVO is expected to be available to order Summer 2017.
“Real-time feedback enables users to see exactly what they have and haven’t captured before the survey has even finished so nothing is missed,” says Richard Betts, CEO. “Furthermore, as registration is happening in real time, the results are available almost immediately on completion of the survey. Possibly the fastest way to undertake indoor mobile mapping has just got even faster.”
GeoSlam was founded in 2012 as a joint venture between CSIRO (Australia’s National Science Agency) and 3D Laser Mapping (a global provider of 3D LiDAR solutions). The company specializes in the design and manufacture of geospatial SLAM hardware and software solutions, including the ZEB1 and ZEB-REVO handheld mobile indoor mapping systems. Based in the U.K., GeoSLAM has a global network of distributors with a presence in 38 countries across six continents.
