Achieving Survey Grade with SLAM-based LiDAR mapping

Unrivaled SLAM Accuracies and Workflow Efficiencies with Hovermap ST and the Automated Ground Control Feature

Watch this webinar to hear from Emesent CEO and Co Founder Dr Stefan Hrabar and Emesent Technical Sales Manager Jordan Herrmann as they share how the new Hovermap ST and the Automated Ground Control feature revolutionize mobile mapping and provide unrivaled SLAM accuracy and workflow efficiencies.

Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) based systems have proved their value for rapid mapping of complex environments, but achieving survey grade accuracy and repeatability has been a challenge in some environments. Surveyors were faced with a compromise between fast data capture and data accuracy, depending on the job requirements.

This is no longer the case with Emesent’s Automated Ground Control feature, which enhances the Hovermap SLAM solution to remove SLAM drift and produce survey grade, georeferenced point clouds.

Watch this webinar to learn:
  • how you can capture survey grade point clouds with the versatility of a mobile scanner
  • how the automated georeferencing in Emesent’s new Automated Ground Control improves your point cloud
  • how the automated target detection in Emesent’s Automated Ground Control allows you to streamline your workflow
  • how the new, IP65 certified Hovermap ST will enable you to scan in more areas
