GeoSLAM will demonstrate how its ZEB-REVO RT handheld laser scanner can be used to reduce the time and cost required for complex indoor 3D mapping on construction sites at the 2018 Association of General Contractors of America (AGC) Convention
In addition to live demonstrations of the ZEB-REVO laser scanner and real-time SLAM processing software, GeoSLAM will highlight a recent case study where a major US construction firm captured geospatial scan data in just 10 minutes to create an accurate 3D BIM for a complex space at one of its project sites. With traditional scanning technology, the data captured would have taken eight hours.
Robby Dudley, GeoSLAM NAFTA Channel Manager said: “AGC attendees who visit our booth will quickly understand why the Architecture Engineering and Construction [AEC] sector is the fastest growing market for GeoSLAM mobile mapping technology.
“The bottom-line benefit of the ZEB-REVO package for general contractors is that 3D mapping can be fast and easy without loss of detail.”
GeoSLAM introduced the ZEB-REVO RT in late 2017 as the next generation in its line of lightweight, durable mobile laser scanners. Weighing just 2 pounds, the handheld device enables users to capture high-quality scan data at walking speed. The ZEB-REVO RT is also ideal for mapping tight and hard-to-access spaces, such as inside drop ceilings. The device uses WiFi to effortlessly connect the scanner to a mobile phone or tablet, allowing for real-time data visualisation as the user works, eliminating the need for post-processing.
Dudley added: “We offer a ‘go-anywhere’ 3D mobile mapping solution that simplifies the production of BIM models.
“Our sales increased 300 percent last year, and most of that growth occurred in the construction, surveying, engineering and facilities management sectors.”
GeoSLAM will be at the AGC Convention being held 26-28 February, at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans. For details, visit the GeoSLAM events page at https://geoslam.com/events/.
