Toronto, Canada: Optech Incorporated announced the next generation in mobile mapping—the Lynx Mobile Mapper M1. The M1 system represents a technology breakthrough with the very latest in mobile mapping design and performance, the company claims. The product comes with a collection rate of up to one million points/second (1 MHz), a fully integrated imaging system and the overall turnkey data collection and software solution.
“Optech has always been the trailblazer for new, technologically advanced LiDAR solutions. The Lynx M1 system continues this trend, being the first of its kind to offer a 1-MHz total scan and data collection rate coupled with millimetre-level precision. Our 3D imaging system distributes those points at high speed, putting most points right where you need them,” said Daina Morgan, Lynx Product Manager.
The Lynx M1 system boasts LiDAR sensors that operate at up to 500 kHz each while maintaining survey-quality precision. The system control software enables the operator to select the camera image frame size for the most effective capture efficiencies. This leads to smaller file sizes—an important consideration as data rates continue to increase.
