The new Leica Pegasus TRK mobile mapping system combines artificial intelligence, autonomous workflows and intuitive interfaces to make mapping projects efficient and cost-effective.
May 9, 2022 – Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, today announced the introduction of the reality capture mobile mapping system Leica Pegasus TRK, which combines artificial intelligence, autonomous workflows and intuitive interfaces.
The Leica Pegasus TRK solution uses artificial intelligence capabilities to transform mobile mapping. The advanced dynamic laser scanning and expandable imagery system for recording, measuring and visualizing environments increases productivity with automated, intelligent workflows. The Pegasus TRK is so light that it can be operated by one person, making mapping projects more efficient and cost-effective. Because of the system’s user-friendliness, it is suitable for professionals who are new to the technology. At the same time, its reliable, high-quality deliverables serve the needs of technical experts in various industries, including surveying, transportation and utilities. The Pegasus TRK solution features an AI-enhanced camera and automatic camera calibration. To comply with privacy regulations, its AI can identify and blur identifiers, such as people and vehicles, in real time.
The Pegasus TRK solution enables long-range mobile mapping for applications in asset management; road construction; rail and critical infrastructure; oil, gas and electricity industries and more. The system is also ideal for creating high-definition base maps for autonomous vehicles.
The Pegasus TRK connects with the new powerful Leica Pegasus FIELD software for fully autonomous and secure data collection and route planning in the field. It also connects with the Leica Cyclone Pegasus OFFICE for seamless input into post-processing and publishing workflows.
“The Pegasus TRK solution is the most efficient mobile mapping product we’ve tried so far,” says Raymon Somford, CEO and owner of Rise3D. “It is lightweight and easy to use, guiding our team through the process of data collection. Its sensors that trigger automatically avoid missing details. We can achieve quality images regardless of the conditions, making mobile mapping almost effortless.”
“The Pegasus TRK solution offers flexibility, true-to-life image clarity and best-in-class accuracy while making mobile mapping more accessible and easier than ever before,” says Christian Schäfer, Business Director Mobile Mapping at Leica Geosystems. “There is a growing demand for more autonomy. This solution raises the bar in data collection with automated route-planning, guidance and collection processes that increase efficiency, improve data quality and reduce project costs.”
This innovative solution will be a featured Tech Highlight at Hexagon’s flagship digital reality solutions conference HxGN Live Global in Las Vegas, NV, from June 20-23, 2022.
