3D Laser Mapping, unveiled an innovative multi-platform mapping system to the African market at Geomatics Indaba. Named ROBIN, the platform is the first of its kind on the market and provides three alternative mapping options rolled into one solution. The versatile system offers many different methods of data capture, meaning users are no longer limited to just one mounting platform. ROBIN is a multi-purpose all round system with the ability to capture data in WALK, FLY or DRIVE mode. The unit integrates a laser scanner, IMU navigation system, 12 MP camera, two GNSS antennas, a touch screen control unit, a 3-in-1 mounting system and software data capture and processing. Both survey-grade and GIS-grade systems are also available with an optional GEOSLAM upgrade, available early next year. ROBIN, well received by the African industry, is the first on the market to offer a three-in-one system.
