-          Unparalleled ease-of-use

-          No user calibration required

-          Full integration of cloud and images

The lightweight, compact IP-S3 HD1 offers a high-density point cloud with colorful image overlays.

ips3 3The IP-S3 HD1 bundles the longstanding experience of Topcon in mobile mapping system in small package. The system overcome the challenges of mapping 3D features at a high level of accuracy. Accurate vehicle positions are obtained using three technologies : A dual frequency GNSS receiver establishes a geospatial position; an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) provides vehicle attitude; and connection to the vehicle or external wheel encoder obtains odometry information. These are technologies work in tandem to sustain a highly accurate 3D position for the vehicle even locations where satellite signals can be blocked by obstructions such as buildings, bridges, or tree lines.

Use the powerful, all-in-one Mobile Master Field and Office software suite to collect and process geo-referenced LiDAR and/or digital imaging data into a colorful 3D representation which can be exported to third party software. Matching techniques and ground control functionality optimizes precision and absolute accuracy. Mobile Master software provides a simple interface for combining, viewing and working with your various sensor data collected from IP-S3 HD1.

The IP-S3 HD1 quickly provides high-accuracy data and dynamic imaging for any mapping project. The easily mounted vehicle system can map data at normal travel speeds for roadway surface condition assessments and roadsite feature inventories. Safety is increased by removing pedestrians from travel lanes. Other applications include pipelines, utilities, as-builts, construction progress monitoring and risk management.

High definition laser scanner

IPS3 2The high definition laser scanner included with the IP-S3 HD1 collects 700,000 points per-second at a range of 100 meters. The scanner has a 360° horizontal field of view and a 30° vertical field of view to increase data collection coverage and minimize laser shadowing. With those features, the system remains lightweight at under 18 kg making in the lightest and most compact high precision mobile mapping system available today.
