Topcon releases new vehicle mounted 3D mobile mapping system

Topcon Positioning Group has announced the unvieling of its latest edition 3D mobile mapping system — the IP-S3 — at the SPAR International 3D Measurement and Imaging Conference. The system employs the integration of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and GNSS receiver with a vehicle’s onboard electronics to offer high-density mobile digital imaging.

Talking about the characteristics of the system, Charles Rihner, Vice President, Topcon GeoPositioning System said, “The IP-S3 is more compact, lightweight, and scans at a rate of up to five times faster than previous models. Weighing in at 18 kg, it’s light enough that a single person could mount it on a car, truck or SUV without any assistance from anyone else.”

Scanning at 700,000 points-per-second, the rotating LiDAR sensor captures the 360-degree environment with 32 internal lasers. The IP-S3’s six-lens digital camera is designed to provide data-rich results with its 30 MP panoramic imagery.

The system pairs with Topcon Mobile Master Field and Office software suite to perform all post-processing functions in a single application.The IP-S3 will be on display at the SPAR conference from March 30 – April 2 in Houston, Texas.
