Mobile scanner range adds indoor-outdoor flexibility

November 8th, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

GeoSlam released its Zeb-Horizon at InterGEO in October 2018, its next generation handheld 3D laser scanner, capable of rapidly capturing intricate indoor and outdoor measurements up to 100 m away. The scanner, which complements the existing ZEB range, is the company’s first new product since its merger with 3D Laser Mapping. Using simultaneous, localisation and mapping (SLAM) technology, the scanner’s advanced capabilities can be deployed for both indoor and outdoor use without the need for GPS. Walk-and-scan data collection allows users to deliver accurate results at speed by emitting seven times more points per second for detailed feature detection. The scanner can be mounted on drones for aerial surveys, integrated into backpack with a panoramic camera for enriched point clouds, or used with a pole option for elevation and cradle for lowering below ground. The ability to use the Zeb-Horizon in both indoor or outdoor scan locations makes it well suited for the construction, architecture, engineering and surveying industries.
