Stonex launches hybrid mobile mapping solution

Stonex has launched the X70GO SLAM laser scanner designed for fast and efficient large-area surveys. It combines mobile scanning with a stationary mode to scan with high resolution to enhance overall surveying capabilities.

X70GO is a real-time 3D model reconstruction device that integrates an inertial navigation module, high-performance computer and storage system. It is equipped with a 360° rotating head, which, combined with the SLAM algorithm, can generate high-precision point cloud data. The built-in 512GB memory disk stores survey results and the dismountable handle has a 1.5-hour battery life.

A 12MP RGB camera offers texture information, while a visual camera aims to enhance the real-time preview with the GOapp. Mapping results can be generated immediately inside the scanner. Users can then color the points and improve their accuracy during post-processing with GOpost software.

The system comes with a hybrid scanning capability. The X-Whizz mode combines the advantages of SLAM mode with the resolution of a static scan, which eliminates the need for multiple scan stations. Users can move around the scene to collect the entire 3D point cloud without time-consuming cloud-to-cloud alignment.

The technology incorporated in the new scanner is designed to provide extended range, a higher number of points per second and advanced onboard processing algorithms. The SLAM laser scanner is well-suited for challenging and demanding environments and can be used in a variety of applications, including BIM, industrial sites, real estate, heritage preservation, tunnels and mining.

Users can add an RTK module to set a point cloud in a global coordinate system. This can support the addition of GNSS information to lidar and inertial measurement unit (IMU) in the SLAM algorithm. In situations with limited GPS connectivity – such as indoors or in challenging environments – the system will rely on lidar and the IMU for positioning purposes.
