France, October 4, 2014: SBG Systems, leading supplier of motion sensing solutions has partnered with VIAmetris, French mobile mapping solutions group, to announce the revolutionary portable indoor mapping system “MID” at upcoming INTERGEO Berlin.
The hand-held MID system integrates a 2D LiDAR, a camera, an AHRS, and a tablet PC that shows the map being drawn while the user walks into the building.
The 2D LiDAR scans the room while the user walks, in a horizontal plane by measuring 43,000 points per second in a 270° field of view. The SLAM technology builds progressively the map in the shape of lines made of points. The MID takes contextual pictures either every meter, at every change of direction, or manually. The centimeter-level accurate map is then ready to be imported in all CAD software.
Ninot, CEO of VIAmetris said, "As the equipment is held by the surveyor, it is never perfectly horizontal. Without an inertial sensor, the quality of the LiDAR data could be diminished. We were searching for an industrial-grade inertial sensor; I knew I would find a high performance AHRS at SBG Systems."
