SOSLAB launches Next-generation 3D Solid-state LiDAR

SOSLAB has launched its next-generation 3D Solid-state LiDAR, ML-X. It is characterized by its compact size along with the measuring distance and resolution more than doubled from those of previous products.

MDM Support for iOS Users by Eos Positioning

Eos Positioning Systems, Inc released Mobile Device Management (MDM) support for iOS. The new MDM capability enables organizations to push to field crews standardized setting parameters for Eos Tools Pro, a GNSS monitoring and solution-enabling app that runs in the background of third-party mobile apps during high-accuracy field data collection. The MDM functionality was built at the request of several mid- to large-sized utilities, but can be deployed by organizations of any size.

The Eos Tools Pro MDM is compatible with any existing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) MDM solution(s) that a customer might already be using. The feature works by allowing a systems administrator to create sets of parameters for Eos Tools Pro. The standardized configuration can then be pushed en masse to all desired groups of mobile devices.

New Leica DMC-4 airborne imaging sensor

Leica Geosystems has announced the introduction of the Leica DMC- 4, a highly efficient airborne imaging sensor providing unsurpassed image quality for various applications and complex mapping environments.
