ms1 chiuso



HERON MS-1 is the rugged version of HERON, designed for surveyors who need to take on more arduous work like in humid or dusty of sites, without losing strength and professionalism in real-time 3D mapping, localization and change detection capabilities. As every HERON versions, even the MS-1 supports a real time 2cm resolution 3D mapping almost everywhere, with 2cm local accuracy and 5cm* estimated global accuracy; higher resolution scans can be then automatically register on the HERON point cloud when requested. HERON MS-1 can be used almost anywhere and does not require GPS/GNSS, targets, trolleys and calibration stops to work properly. Its rugged design is very appreciated in difficult sites like underground mines.

    *Global accuracy depends on the effectiveness of the SLAM registration algorithm, which can be influenced by the geometry of the surveyed data. Long paths in absence of loop closures and crossover, but also different conditions as narrow tunnels and stairs can downgrade the global accuracy to 20-50 cm, partially or fully improved using the advanced control parameters available in the HERON® Desktop software. Ask to Gexcel support team for more detailed information on how to get the best results from your HERON® instrument.


    HERON® Desktop

    The software specifically designed for the HERON® data post-processing.
    It allows to:
    •  Process the acquired data
    •  Minimize the "drift" effects (tical of SLAM process)
    •  Export the final point cloud model (.E57, .las, .ply)
    •  Get reference maps for tracking survey (Localization and Change Detection)
    •  Extract 2D maps and global preview of the model with geometrical changes (obtained by surveying in Change Detection mode)
    •  Easily go to JRC 3D Reconstructor® for results and deeper data analysis

    JRC 3D Reconstructor® MINING-TUNNELLING

    Dedicated to mine and tunnel surveying projects based on Lidar sensors and UAVs data.
    Main output:
    •  DTM generation and editing with easy workflows
    •  Contour lines, crests&toes, cut&fill, profiles, plan views extraction
    •  UAV GeoTIFF mapping
