How is Leica Pegasus: Two Ultimate different from its earlier version Leica Pegasus: Two?

The Leica Pegasus:Two Ultimate is an upgrade to the Pegasus:Two, Leica Geosystem’s trusted mobile mapping platform. With a focus on imaginary, it removes the need for multiple-camera stitching by incorporating a single stitchless 24 MP 360-degree camera calibrated to the LiDAR profiler for measurements directly from the 360-degree image, enabling true survey-grade digital reality captures from car, train, or boat.

The new Leica Pegasus:Two Ultimate increase the typical working day – allowing capture in a variety of lighting conditions and vehicle speeds – a higher dynamic range is enabled by a large sensor to pixel ratio and a dual-light sensor. Photogrammetry and HD image quality is improved with the increased side camera resolution to twelve mega pixels with onboard JPEG compression.

To enable faster processing at the office, a removable SSD allows to simply eject your data and walk into the office.

What are the key applications for which Pegasus: Two Ultimate is most suitable for?

Digitisation of city and transportation infrastructures, planning, and assets is the foundation of the Smart City, the Leica Pegasus:Two Ultimate enables your growth and ability to offer the best solution for this market. Seamless 360° imagery calibrated to the digital point cloud will help you to deliver easily realised data assets for a future with autonomous vehicles, smart rail, and smart cities.

How cost efficient are mobile mapping systems?

Leica Geosystems’ Mobile Mapping Systems increase, in general, the survey productivity up to 20 times. Where environments would have taken weeks to survey, they now only take days, improving efficiency and productivity – while eliminating traffic manage and putting workers at risk.

What has been the growth and penetration of 3D mapping systems in different geographies of the world?

In recent years, mobile mapping has become one of the most important geospatial technologies available and it continues to change the way environments are measured, visualised, analysed, and catalogued. Through Leica Geosystems’ world-wide sales and support channels, we have touch every geographical location in the world. There are few countries where a Leica Geosystems’ mobile mapping system is not available for demo or a partnership with an existing user. The geographic width of where the Leica Geosystems’ technology is power to the strength the technology.

How according to you has mobile mapping technology evolved over the years?

Mobile mapping is now more quick, accurate, and more comprehensive than ever before, and is delivering significant benefits to users and asset owners. Inaccessible areas can be mapped effectively and quickly using the Leica Geosystems Mobile Platforms – through such technologies as SLAM – we are mapping the unreachable. From mapping water pipes to sewer drains to caves, mobile mapping has extended to areas that could never be reached before as they were in GNSS denied areas. Today, by marrying multiple positioning technologies, Leica Geosystems’ is able to offer survey-grade accuracy which is accepted as a standard.
