New multiplatform mapping system launched

3D Laser Mapping have released ROBIN, the first multi-platform mapping system to provide three alternative mapping options in one solution. The system was launched at this year’s GeoBusiness 2016 geospatial event in London.

ROBIN allows users to map areas via walking, driving or flying. It provides a multi-purpose, all round system integrating 12 MP for driving, 18MP for walking and flying, two GNSS antennas, GIS grade IMU navigation system, touch screen control unit, three mounting systems, capture software, a post-processing software package, and has a field of view of 330 degrees.

Long range and precision versions are also available.

The system improves the quality of measurements, minimises costs to businesses, and increases the safety of workers.

Executive chairman at 3D Laser Mapping Graham Hunter said ROBIN is an exciting product for the industry and provides high quality data capture from a wide range of terrains including footpaths, forests, and coastlines that are only accessible by foot.

Mark Hudson, managing director of consulting geospatial engineers and chartered land surveyors Geoterra, received an advanced preview of the technology, saying, “It’s become evident that there’s a gap in the sector for this kind of product and we’re sure it’ll prove to be an extremely popular addition to the marketplace.”

3D Laser Mapping also plans to launch the indoor mapping SLAM upgrade for the system later this year.
