GeoSLAM Welcomes CSIRO Visitors to UK HQ

GeoSLAM were delighted to welcome guests from Australia’s CSIRO to the UK Head Office earlier this month.

CSIRO Senior Project Manager Paul Flick and Robotics Group Leader Fred Pauling met with GeoSLAM CEO Shelley Copsey and senior management for a two-day visit.

The purpose of the visit was to reinforce the ties between GeoSLAM and it’s founding partner, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), to foster future collaborations between the two organisations (particularly around the insights from data), and to enable Paul and Fred to meet the growing GeoSLAM team, following this summer’s merger with 3D Laser Mapping.

Both Paul and Fred were instrumental in developing the technology which led to the development of the world’s first SLAM-based mobile mapping system – the ZEB1.

Throughout their visit, the guests were introduced to many members of the GeoSLAM team, including staff from the Operations, Development, Sales & Marketing and Innovation departments.

Despite a busy schedule, Fred and Paul managed to find time to take part in GeoSLAM’s inaugural ‘Sausage Fest’ lunch – pictured above, alongside CEO Shelley Copsey, Sales & Marketing Director Richard Thomas, Development Director Rob Knight, and Software Development Manager Dan Seagrave.
