Hexagon AB’s Leica BLK ARC and the Leica BLK2FLY laser scanning sensors will be used in autonomous robots of the future. These two solutions extend the company’s iconic and award-winning BLK series known for speed, portability and mobility with fully autonomous mobile reality capture. Both connect directly to Hexagon’s cloud-based visualization platform, called HxDR, where users can immediately data upload from the field, while AI-enabled cloud processing and storage of the captured data enables instantaneous delivery of a purpose-built smart digital reality.

Leica BLK ARC is essentially a laser scanning sensor designed specially to improve the autonomous navigation of robots and other carrier platforms to deliver fully autonomous mobile laser scanning. Leica BLK2FLY is touted as the world’s first fully integrated, autonomous flying laser scanning sensor. At the push of a few taps on a tablet, users can quickly and easily scan structures as well as environments directly from the air.
