Leica BLK ARC on Spot System Package

PRODUCT ENQUIRY
  • Performs scan missions autonomously with minimal user intervention
  • Easily mounts to Boston Dynamics Spot and integrates with its sensors
  • Improves robotic navigation while capturing 3D point clouds to create 3D digital twins
  • Captures both static and mobile scans during the same scan mission
  • Can repeat scan missions autonomously for up-to-date project progress and site changes
  • Uses GrandSLAM technology: LiDAR SLAM, Visual SLAM, and an IMU for reality capture and autonomous navigation through complex environments
Brand: Leica Geosystems    Code: LG6017420
Supplier Code: 6017420

Remote user operation

Plan and execute missions from a remote location, whether in the office or in the field, which also keeps you safe from hazardous areas.

Offline path planning

Create new missions and adjust existing missions for any environment using Leica Cyclone 3DR.

GrandSLAM Technology

GrandSLAM combines LiDAR SLAM, Visual SLAM, and an IMU to enable fully autonomous scanning and robotic navigation.

Static and mobile scanning modes

BLK ARC can scan in static and mobile mode during the same scan mission and all scans of both types will be registered together during the mission

LiDAR module protection

Included U-bar protects the BLK ARC module when mounted to its robotic carrier.

Simple user interface

Control and manage your BLK ARC from an easy-to-use, browser-based application: BLK ARC UI.

Upload to HxDR

Upload BLK ARC data directly from the module to HxDR, our cloud-based data storage, visualization, and collaboration platform.

Autonomous Reality Capture for Robots

The Leica BLK ARC is an autonomous laser scanning module for robots. It is designed to be integrated with robotic carriers to enable autonomous mobile laser scanning with minimal or no human intervention. Users can simply plan a scan path and set BLK ARC off on its own to scan autonomously.

Our first robotic carrier is the Boston Dynamics Spot robot. BLK ARC combined with Spot creates a fast, simple, safe, and autonomous reality capture workflow. Together, they deliver fully autonomous and repeatable scan missions to capture 3D point clouds and panoramic imagery while Spot carries BLK ARC through an environment.

With BLK ARC UI, an easy-to-use browser-based user interface, users can plan scan paths remotely using existing drawings or BIM models of your building, including large and complex spaces. This enables the user to save time and allow BLK ARC to scan complex or hazardous environments while remaining in a safe location.

BLK ARC UI enables the user to:

  • Operate different sensors and robotic carriers
  • Create user profiles
  • Manage robot and scan settings
  • Control robot trajectory and the detail camera

BLK ARC UI bridges the distance between the office and the field and enables uploads of offline missions planned in Cyclone 3DR to the robot. Once the mission is complete, BLK ARC UI helps to direct the data either into our legacy software, Leica Cyclone, or to direct upload from the field to HxDR.

BLK ARC USE CASES

The BLK ARC is designed to help professionals across many industries worldwide. It adds a level of autonomy and integrated scanning that boosts productivity, eliminates extra work, and helps robotic carriers navigate terrain on their own.

Buildings & Infrastructure

Documenting site conditions on a daily, routine basis can be time-consuming and repetitive, but BLK ARC makes the job easy, fast, and fully autonomous.


Underground

To document structures and environments in hazardous or inconvenient environments, like underground mines, BLK ARC is the tool of choice as you can plan scans remotely and let it scan on its own.


Industrial & Plant

To perform reality capture of complex structures and environments, BLK ARC is ideal; with SPOT, it autonomously scans and navigates through plants and facilities.


Utilities

Capturing utility infrastructure, complexes, and facilities with BLK ARC provides an easy to use and fully autonomous robotic reality capture workflow with minimal hands-on work required.
