From the laser scanning side the big news from HxGN LIVE’s pre-opening day was the display of a mobile mapping solution by Leica GeoSystems. The Leica Pegasus:One, as it is being called was being shown with the HDS 7000, but the brochure indicates that the system is compatible with a number of scanners including the P20.
The system is being positioned as a complete hardware and software solution. It is plug-and-play and does not require a dedicated vehicle. The system includes six 2 MB cameras positioned to capture a full 360 x 70 degree view.
I would expect to hear quite about this tomorrow as part of the GeoSystems keynote. Stay tuned.
