Gexcel is an Italian company with full-proven expertise to provide innovative software and instruments dedicated to the 3D geospatial and surveying/mapping market and sold worldwide directly and by partners as ClearEdge, Faro, Geomax, Stonex, Teledyne-Optech, Zoller+Fröhlich. The first successful product, commercialized since 2001, is the well-known Reconstructor® software for laser scanner data processing. In 2016 Gexcel introduced HERON®, one of the most advanced SLAM-based wearable indoor mobile mapping systems.
In 2019 Gexcel presented the innovative OPMMS® (Open Pit Mine Monitoring System), easily called Monitoring System, based on automatic survey and combined with long-range LiDAR scanners. Gexcel is currently engaged in several partnerships with Universities and Research Institutes as the Laboratories of the EU Commission or the CRS4 Visual Computing (ViC).
HERON® is a SLAM-based scanner for fast mobile mapping activity indoors and outdoors. Versatile and extremely performing also when GNSS signal cannot be easily tracked, HERON® works properly in every light conditions HERON® features a single or double laser sensor and a 5K pano camera, and is perfect everywhere, but especially underground mines, geospatial applications, multi-level buildings, tunnels, cultural heritage sites, forensic procedures, forests, urban areas. Particularly appreciated for harsh and complex areas.
The HERON® family is composed by HERON® LITE, HERON® LITE Color, and the latest HERON® MS Twin. Using the Velodyne Puck Lite, HERON® goes from backpack to handheld, car, and more.
Our goal is to provide fast, real-time 3D data from mobile mapping systems. The collecting data can be used for several applications: volume computation, excavation progress monitoring, digital archive, construction progress monitoring, floor plans generation for asset management, logistic/traffic management, dilapidation monitoring, scan-to-BIM, contours and profiles, 3D virtual experience, real-time change detection, as-built generation, and much more.
