Mobile mapping systems provide reality capture in complex built environments such as construction sites and multi-level towers.
Carla Lauter wrote an article in SPAR3D about how the wearable NavVis VLX mapping system uses two Velodyne Puck LITE™ sensors to capture point cloud data needed to create building documentation including floorplans, 3D models and digital twins.
The article includes a quote from NavVis CTO Georg Schroth saying:
“We designed NavVis VLX to provide the AEC industry with a compact, versatile device that efficiently captures buildings and still delivers survey-grade point clouds.”
“The NavVis VLX system strongly demonstrates how the performance, range and compact form factor of Velodyne sensors enable companies to build innovative systems. The solution addresses specialized mobile mapping needs of AEC companies, surveyors and laser scanning professionals,” said Erich.
Lidar-powered mobile mapping systems can capture the data needed for as-built documentation, such as 3D models and floorplans, as well as realistic digital factories for enterprise manufacturing facilities.
