Case Study: A comparative report on the efficiencies of Emesent Hovermap and Total Station
Since the 1960s, total stations have dominated the surveying industry, providing sub-5mm accuracy for topographical surveys.
The problem with total stations is that surveying even small-scale landscapes can take hours. What if, however, there were a quicker method?
Enter Emesent Hovermap.
The Emesent Hovermap is an adaptable SLAM-based mapper that makes mapping more effective, straightforward, and secure. The Emesent Hovermap’s adaptable design allows it to be utilised for walking, vehicle, backpack-mounted, and drone-mounted surveys.
This adaptability has played a significant role in the Hovermap’s rapid ascent to become one of the most widely used tools in the industry, allowing you to complete tasks faster and move on to the next.
Customers have logged thousands of survey hours, making this the most tried-and-true LiDAR mapping and autonomy solution for GPS-denied environments. But how does it compare to the standard in the industry?
In short, it surpasses expectations.
When mapping the entrance to a 73-meter-long housing estate, we recently compared the Hovermap to a total station survey. We were able to collect and process 100,000 points with an accuracy of 1-2 centimetres over 86% faster than with the Total Station, in just 17 minutes and thirty seconds.
