GeoSLAM unveils ZEB-CAM, a new add-on option for the ZEB-REVO mobile indoor mapping system. ZEB-CAM integrates seamlessly with the existing ZEB-REVO and allows imagery to be captured simultaneously alongside scan data. With an integrated inertial sensor ZEB-CAM utilises optical flow technology to accurately synchronise the acquired imagery to the point cloud data.
Mark Reid GeoSLAM’s COO said “At GeoSLAM we listen to our customers; whilst many users around the world have been benefiting from the unparalleled speed, simplicity and performance of the ZEB-REVO, several have asked for further contextual information to best utilise the resulting point cloud. ZEB-CAM therefore makes interrogation and feature extraction from ZEB-REVO data simpler than ever.
ZEB-CAM has been designed to maintain and enhance the core benefits of the ZEB-REVO, which make it such a versatile solution.
Ric Durrant, GeoSLAM CTO said, “We did not want to overcomplicate the ZEB-CAM and needed to keep the overall system compact, light and simple to operate. The modular approach that has been adopted with ZEB-CAM means that it can be quickly attached or detached depending on the application and deployment method being used. Keeping things simple is harder than it looks but the results speak for themselves.”
Using GeoSLAM Desktop 2017, imagery can be viewed alongside the point cloud data. Click on a point of interest in the scan and all corresponding images of that location are automatically displayed. Alternatively find a feature in the imagery and then use the software to locate that position in the scan.
ZEB-CAM is available to order from GeoSLAM or through our global partner network. To learn more or find your local distributor visit www.geoslam.com.
