HERON

THE PROFESSIONAL 3D MAPPING MOBILE SYSTEM

 

Designed in collaboration with the EC-JRC research center, HERON makes the 3D surveying work more effective. Lightweight and versatile, it is able to adapt to the most varied applicationfields: indoor and outdoor environments, underground places like tunnels or mines, vast and complex industrial plants... You wear it, walk and visualize in 3D the reality that surrounds you, or observe in real-time the "as-built/as-designed" differences in a building site or the geometrical changes occurred over time within a site.

*The global accuracy depends on the effectiveness of the SLAM registration algorithm, which can be influenced by the geometry of the surveyed data. Long paths in absence of loop closures and crossover, but also different conditions as narrow tunnels and stairs can downgrade the global accuracy to 20-50 cm, partially or fully improved using the advanced control parameters available in the HERON® Desktop software. Ask to Gexcel support team for more detailed information on how to get the best results from your HERON® system.
