Hovermap: Enabling Autonomous LiDAR Mapping in Challenging, Inaccessible Areas

On-demand Webinar | Free

Hovermap is a SLAM-based LiDAR mapping and autonomy payload which allows drones to map and explore challenging GPS-denied environments autonomously, beyond line-of-sight. It can also be detached and used as a handheld lidar scannner. Hovermap has built a reputation for delivering high-quality data capture and unprecedented insights in the underground mining, infrastructure, survey and mapping industries. This webinar will give an overview of Hovermap and show use cases from various industries.
