GeoSLAM launches new ZEB-HORIZON 3D Mobile Scanner

Harriet Brewitt

Last month’s INTERGEO conference in Frankfurt, Germany saw the GeoSLAM team unveil our latest innovation in our successful ZEB range – the ZEB-HORIZON.

The next generation in handheld scanners, the device offers outstanding visibility and can capture intricate measurements from up to 100m away in both indoor and outdoor surveys. It is the first product to be launched since our recent merger with 3D Laser Mapping, and was met with huge acclaim when launched at INTERGEO!

Powerful performance

Harnessing GeoSLAM’s powerful SLAM (Simultaneous, Localisation And Mapping) technology, the ZEB-HORIZON can be used in outdoor areas with limited GPS signal, such as underground or in dense forest environments.

With a collection rate of 300,000 points per second and an accuracy of 1-3cm (depending on what scan environment), the ZEB-HORIZON is also ideal for those working in construction, architecture, engineering and surveying.

The versatility of the ZEB-HORIZON allows data to be collected for all projects including 2D floor plan generation, 3D volumetric calculations, measured building calculations, scan-to-BIM and object identification. The simple ‘walk-and-scan’ method of data collection, allows even the most inexperienced operator to create accurate results at speed.

Complete versatility

The versatility of the scanner allows the system to be used in combination with different equipment to suit any type of survey, including:

  • Aerial surveys when mounted on a UAV for difficult-to-reach or potentially hazardous locations.
  • Underground surveys using the GeoSLAM Cradle to reach more difficult to access areas such as through manholes.
  • Increased-range surveys when attached to an extendable pole, which also allows access to higher, inaccessible areas like ceiling voids.

Shelley Copsey, GeoSLAM CEO, explained:

“The ZEB-HORIZON is an exciting new development in the hugely-popular ZEB family. The whole team was amazed at the positive feedback from those who visited our stand as we launched the solution at INTERGEO.

“The event is one of the most important in our industry calendar and it was great to showcase our range of products and solutions on our biggest stand ever!”
