Celebrity Visitor - The Leica Pegasus: Two
2 July 2020
There was a celebrity visitor at the Global Survey Auckland office last week when James popped in with the Leica Pegasus: Two (Ultimate) Mobile Mapper! This high-speed Profiler delivers 1,000,000 points across 200 line scans per second, combined with the imagery stitched together by the IMU & GPS.
The Pegasus: Two is used for road, rail or water surveying and captures calibrated imagery and point cloud in one pass. The Cameras rotate 360° so they can also analyse structures and it has an additional two external cameras used for pavement analysis – crack, roughness and rut detection.
We operate this cutting-edge technology as we are committed to delivering superior road and pavement solutions for longer lasting roads across New Zealand.
