Emesent, a provider of drone autonomy, LiDAR mapping, and data analytics launched three new products at INTERGEO, which will help geospatial professionals save time while capturing accurate data for digital twins and BIM applications.

The products include Hovermap ST-X, a new Hovermap variant with a sensing range of 300 meters and improved accuracy, a Long Range Radio add-on which increases the communication range with Hovermap up to 20 times further, and Emesent’s Aura platform which offers an integrated SLAM processing and point cloud visualization environment for Hovermap users.

“We’re excited to launch these products, which together will allow our customers to capture dense, accurate 3D data in large, complex areas in less time and view the results in exquisite detail to derive new insights,” said Emesent CEO and Cofounder Dr Stefan Hrabar.

Extending the reach of autonomous LiDAR scanning while capturing denser, more accurate point clouds

Hovermap ST-X is the newest edition of Emesent’s award-winning Hovermap autonomy and mapping device. It incorporates the latest in LiDAR sensing technology to offer high density point clouds with increased coverage and improved accuracy. Featuring a sensing range of 300 meters, triple returns, and more than a million points per second, it captures detailed, accurate data over a greater area in less time. Customers scanning large areas for mining, construction, and forestry will benefit from these features, providing faster time to insight.

Fast-tracking inspections and surveying with continuous scanning over longer distances

Emesent’s Long Range Radio accessory attaches to Hovermap to increase the connectivity range up to 20 times further (up to one kilometer for above ground line of site flight applications).

“Our Long Range Radio allows operators to reap the full benefits of Hovermap ST-X’s autonomy and mapping capabilities and extend the range of its applications,” said Andre.

“It’s also compatible with Hovermap ST, so existing customers will benefit too”.

Simplifying 3D laser scanning workflows from capture to insight

Aura, Emesent’s integrated processing, visualization, and analytics platform provides a streamlined workflow for Hovermap users to process their data, view the results, clean datasets, and take measurements to derive insights and make decisions.

Aura’s visualization engine has been optimized for the dense, detailed point clouds produced by Hovermap ST and ST-X. Users can view point clouds with more than a billion points at full resolution to ensure crucial details and insights are not missed.
