PRESS RELEASE — Gexcel presents HERON® MS Twin

Brescia, Italy, October 7th, 2020_Gexcel is glad to present the new HERON® MS Twin: a double Lidar sensor portable mobile mapping system, equipped with a 5k RGB panoramic camera. Thanks to its advanced hardware+software technology, the users can benefit from a very high-level performance in terms of geometric robustness of 3D models.

Key points of usability:

  • Compact capture head easily mountable on a backpack or various supports like cars, bikes, quads, etc.
  • Light rugged backpack usable both for transportation and surveying.
  • Automatic and on-demand RGB data acquisition.
  • Loop closure and initialization procedure not required.
  • Automatic self-localization on a reference model, when available.
  • Annotation collection during the walk.
  • Usable in every light conditions.
  • Hands-free surveying.
  • Real-time display of panorama images, 3D point cloud, and trajectory on the rugged Control Unit.

Key points of data processing:

  • SLAM post-processing software (HERON® Desktop) included. The automatic advanced processing tools can be also personally set up by the user.
  • New trajectory quality assessment which improves the SLAM drift effects reduction (patented algorithm).
  • Innovative very dense point cloud rendering with multiple colour layers.

  • Static scans usable as trajectory constraints (patented algorithm).
  • Innovative panorama tool to directly export images and 3D data in ReCap® (with Realview® display) and in E57 to easily go to OrbitGT, Edgewise®, FARO® Scene and Scene Webshare Cloud.
  • New “splat rendering” and “eye dome lighting" rendering effect. Features and details are emphasized and well visible.
  • GoBlueprint free tool to share the survey results with final clients or colleagues included.

  • Advanced 3D point cloud data analysis software included (Recontructor®).
  • Dedicated tools to navigate 3D models.
  • Real-time change detection.

Thanks to these advanced features, HERON® MS Twin is the perfect system for surveyors who works indoors, outdoors, in underground mines, multi-level buildings, tunnels, cultural heritage sites, forensic procedures, forests, urban areas, harsh and complex areas.

HERON® MS Twin can make the user able to obtain several outputs from collected data: volume computation, excavation progress monitoring, digital archive, construction progress monitoring, floor plans generation for asset management, logistic/traffic management, dilapidation monitoring, scan to BIM, contours and profiles, 3D virtual experience, real-time change detection, as-built generation, security and safety, and much more.
