Hovermap Wins Geo Week’s LiDAR Leader Outstanding Innovation Award

Emesent is proud to have their Hovermap LiDAR mapping and autonomy payload announced as the winner of the Geo Week LiDAR Leader Award for Outstanding Innovation.

“We’re honored to be recognized as an innovative leader in geospatial LiDAR technology,” said Dr Stefan Hrabar, Emesent CEO and Co-Founder.

Announced at the Geo Week Conference in Denver today the LiDAR Leader Awards honor the achievements of individuals and teams working in the geospatial technology space. The Outstanding Innovation in LiDAR Award highlights excellence in innovations in this space.

“Having first launched Hovermap at Geo Week in 2019, our team is extremely proud to be acknowledged for the advances we’ve made in LiDAR-based SLAM mapping and autonomy since the launch. It’s been amazing to see the value our customers have enjoyed from scanning hazardous, GPS-denied environments that were previously inaccessible,” said Dr Hrabar.

Hovermap’s high quality, high resolution, colorized point clouds have enabled customers to derive new insights in mining, architecture, construction, engineering, forestry, and other verticals.

Hovermap was recognized for its advanced autonomy and mapping capabilities. When mounted on a drone, it provides safe, autonomous, beyond line of sight flight in challenging areas even without GPS.

Another key feature considered was Hovermap’s versatility. The plug and play capability allows users to easily detach it from a drone to perform walking, vehicle-mounted, or ground robot- based scans. This allows mapping practically any indoor or outdoor area quickly and easily.

The award was well-timed with the recent opening of Emesent’s US office in Denver. Members of the US-based team were excited to receive it and are confident this will further boost Emesent’s reputation in the North American market.
