PRODUCT ENQUIRY
Revolutionary autonomy for data gathering, analysis and insights in challenging and GPS denied environments.
Brand: Hovermap    Code: HOVERMAP100V-AL1
Supplier Code:

Telecommunication tower mapping and inspection

Inspection through drone

Building construction monitoring

Mapping of underground mines

Hovermap offers revolutionary efficiency, safety and operational insights to challenging above ground, underground and GPS-denied environments.

It provides collision avoidance, GPS-denied flight, advanced autonomy and SLAM-based LiDAR mapping. This allows a Hovermap-enabled drone to be deployed in challenging GPS-denied environments, to collect 3D and other data which was previously impossible to collect. This new data in turn leads to new insights.

How long has Hovermap been in use for?

The first early adopters started in Feb 2017 with mapping only. That early adopter (and others) is still actively using the same hardware, so even the prototypes have lasted well. AL1 was first released to early adopters in July 2018.

How long has Hovermap been a commercial product?

Commercial launch of the HF1 / VF1 was in Jan 2019.

How many versions of Hovermap have there been?

Between 2014 and Jan 2019, Hovermap went through 6 iterations in order to reach the current commercially available product. Much work has been done to reach the current solution.

How many Hovermaps are being used around the world now?

18 Early Adopters have product and over 35 systems have been commercially sold around the world to date.

Features

Collision avoidance and autonomy

Omni-directional LiDAR-based collision avoidance keeps the drone safe while flying up-close to structures to inspect them. Advanced autonomy allows beyond line-of-sight mission execution in GPS-denied environments.

GPS-denied flight

Allows flying indoors, underground or under bridges.

SLAM-based 3D mapping

SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) allows mapping even when GPS is unavailable.
