The vehicle-mounted IP-S2 mobile precision mapping and survey system integrates laser scanning and digital imaging for the building of 3D models.
A vehicle-mounted, mobile 3D precision mapping and survey system introduced by Topcon, IP-S2 combines dual-frequency GNSS signal tracking and positioning with inertial measurement to integrate laser scanning and digital imaging. By using 3D laser scanners, LIDAR “point cloud” and/or cameras, the data collected is integrated, time-stamped and geo-referenced. The customer can then quickly and accurately combine LIDAR and digital imaging data to build 3D models of the areas driven. Sensor integration creates applications for the technology in GIS, construction, agriculture, mapping and machine control.
Topcon Positioning Group has announced advances to its P-32 asphalt paving system with new components including the ST-3 sonic tracker, anti-vibration slope sensor, and a firmware update to the full-color, graphic display GC-35 control box.
A new data controller from Topcon Positioning Group, the FC-500, features a large 4.3-inch touch-screen display and 5MP camera with built-in LED flash.
