GeoSLAM announces real-time upgrade for indoor mobile mapper

May 9, 2017  - By

ZEBREVO_RealTime-GeoSlam-WA real-time upgrade option is now available for Zeb-REVO, GeoSLAM Ltd.’s handheld indoor mobile mapping system. Shown for the first time at SPAR 3D 2017, the optional upgrade consists of a revised datalogger 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 browser-enabled device including smartphones and tablets.

The lightweight revolving laser scanner can be handheld, pole-mounted or attached to a mobile platform such as a vehicle or UAV, and then pass through the target survey environment to record more than 40,000 measurement points\ per second.


The datalogger is compatible with all existing standard REVOs, said 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,” he said.

Richard Betts, CEO, added, “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. 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!”

The real-time upgrade for Zeb-REVO is expected to be available for order this summer.
