Position Partners to distribute NavVis VLX wearable mobile mapping systems to AEC sector in Australasia
Wearable mobile mapping systems to be sold and supported throughout Australia and New Zealand by positioning solutions provider, Position Partners.
Position Partners announces a distribution agreement with German-based NavVis, a leading developer of mobile mapping reality capture solutions. Under the agreement, Position Partners will sell and support the NavVis VLX solution, a wearable scanning system that enables fast data capture of complex structures using advanced Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) technology.
“NavVis is highly regarded as a global leader in mobile mapping and SLAM technology,” said Martin Nix, Position Partners CEO. “We look forward to introducing the NavVis VLX wearable mobile mapping system to our customers – it is a dynamic solution that makes light work of modelling large, complex structures in a fraction of the time compared with terrestrial models.”
Ideal for facility managers, engineers, architects and other construction or geospatial professionals, the NavVis VLX is designed to capture complex areas accurately as the user walks around a site.
Using a combination of LiDAR sensors, four cameras for 360-degree imagery, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and advanced SLAM software, the NavVis VLX delivers survey-grade point cloud data 10 times faster than terrestrial 3D laser scanning methods.
“With a range of smarts to save users more time, such as automatic removal of dynamic objects and noise reduction, the NavVis VLX is a highly sophisticated yet easy to use instrument,” said Geoffrey Preece, Market Development Manager – Scanning at Position Partners.
“Backed by comprehensive training and support by our team here in Australia and New Zealand, we believe this will be a popular solution for the local AEC sector,” he added.
“Position Partners has a large and experienced team to support customers with their reality capture solutions, making them the ideal partner for NavVis in Australasia,” said Finn Boysen, Chief Revenue Officer at NavVis.
“We are excited to announce our agreement and introduce a dynamic and efficient way for customers in these countries to accurately capture complex structures using our best-in-class hardware solution, NavVis VLX,” he added.
