HERON Lite

YOUR LIGHT, HANDHELD, PROFESSIONAL 3D MAPPING SYSTEM!

HERON LITE is a handheld 3D mapping system composed of a laser sensor for fast 3D mapping activities, gathering real-time 3D LiDAR data including distances and calibrated reflectivity measurements. Particularly appreciated in stockpile volumetric computation, underground mines and when RGB information is not required. HERON LITE is provided with a complete software package to manage the entire data processing workflow. The long-range sensor configuration available.

Description

HERON LITE is a handheld 3D mapping system composed of a laser sensor for fast 3D mapping activities, gathering real-time 3D LiDAR data including distances and calibrated reflectivity measurements. Particularly appreciated in stockpile volumetric computationunderground mines and when RGB information is not required. HERON LITE is provided with complete on-premise software packages to manage the entire data processing workflow. The long-range sensor configuration is available.

INCLUDED ON-PREMISE SOFTWARE:

  • HERON Desktop: for no limits SLAM processing, with patented algorithms
  • Reconstructor: for 3D point cloud advanced post-processing
  • GoBlueprint: for x-ray maps visualization and measuring (free software)

SYSTEM USABILITY:

  • Easy georeferencing procedure
  • Control points and scans used as constraints
  • Loop closure not mandatory
  • Initialization procedure not required
  • Handheld or wearable design
  • Versatile capture head dockable also to a rugged backpack or vehicles (cars, bikes, quads, etc.)
  • Rugged touchscreen Control Unit providing:
  • Full system control
  • Annotations
  • Real-time view of the point cloud generation
  • Hands-free configuration

DATA PROCESSING:

  • Accurate 3D models
  • Very dense point cloud rendering with multiple colour layers
  • Direct export of 3D data to ReCap Pro
  • Easy data export to third-party software (e.g. 3DM Feature Extraction, EdgeWise, Micromine, Scene, Verity) and cloud platforms (e.g. 3DM Cloud, 3DUserNetVISION, Cintoo Cloud, Scene Webshare) through the .e57 format
  • Advanced rendering which emphasizes features and details point clouds
  • 3D models navigation tools
