Topcon Positioning Group announces an update to its world’s first line of 3-D positioning systems designed for one-operator layout – the LN-100W. The latest model includes Bluetooth functionality.
LIVERMORE, Calif., Oct. 7, 2014—Topcon Positioning Group announces the latest edition to its line of 3-D mobile mapping systems - the IP-S3. The fully integrated high-density digital imaging system is more compact, lightweight, and designed to scan at a rate up to five times faster than previous models.
Scanning at 700,000 points-per-second, the system is designed to offer data-rich results with its 30 MP panoramic imagery. Weighing 18 kg (39 lb.), the IP-S3 is engineered to offer simplified installation.
“The IP-S3 is a mobile mapping powerhouse,” said Ian Stilgoe, director of geomatics for Topcon, “It bundles years of mobile mapping experience to glean a high-density and high-resolution camera in a unit that is much smaller than its predecessors. It is so lightweight that a single person could mount it on a vehicle without assistance from anyone else.”
The system pairs with Topcon Mobile Master Office software to perform all post-processing functions in a single application.
“Mobile Master Office software offers a complete workflow in a single package, turning raw sensor data collected by the IP-S3 system into rich and precise point clouds and images,” said Stilgoe.
The system is planned for release in late 2014.

senseFly is proud to introduce eXom, the next-generation rotary drone that offers professional users unprecedented situational awareness. In addition to seeing what its TripleView camera head sees, eXom’s five vision sensors also enable you to see in the direction the drone is moving – like the visual parking displays in modern high-end cars – for enhanced awareness and safe operation. These sensors work in harmony with eXom’s five ultrasonic sensors to ensure you always know the drone’s distance from nearby objects. Plus, eXom includes the extra security of automated proximity warnings, and shock-absorbent carbon fibre shrouding protects eXom’s rotors in case of surface contact.
