Why choose the Elios 3?

Survey the most inaccessible areas of your workplace

Unlike other drone mounted LiDAR solutions, the Elios 3 Surveying Solution relies on the collision tolerant design of the drone and the FlyAware™ Autonomy Engine to survey the most inaccessible areas of your workplace. Whether you want to map No-Go zones of your underground mine, survey inaccessible infrastructure, or monitor and measure the amount of material in a silo or stockpile, the Elios 3 Surveying Solution can do it.

Maintain the highest safety standards for your employees

Safety is paramount. The Elios 3 Surveying Solution gives you access and insights into parts of your workplace that were previously inaccessible without compromising the safety of your employees. The risk to workers is reduced by removing employees from the hazardous environment.  

Increase efficiency and productivity

From data capture to CAD drawing, the Elios 3 and GeoSLAM Connect work seamlessly together to bring days of work down to hours. As a result, you can collect more data more often and solve problems before it’s too late.

When to use Elios 3

Mapping areas that are out of reach or too dangerous for humans to enter is critical yet often impossible. Whether you are in underground mines, surveying inaccessible infrastructure or mapping indoor stockpiles, surveying previously unreachable and dangerous areas is now possible.
