What is SLAM?

SLAM technology is an algorithm that determines your location and trajectory as you move through a defined area. It processes information from the LiDAR sensors, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), and cameras to continuously calculate your position as you move.

SLAM is crucial in mobile mapping because, unlike terrestrial laser scanners that operate in a fixed (and known) location, the data is captured dynamically as you move. The sensors are in motion as you move through the space, which without SLAM would cause alignment errors.

NavVis SLAM technology has been comprehensively tried and tested in a range of challenging applications to deliver the most advanced and market-leading accuracy for mobile mapping. Contact the Position Partners Scanning Team to learn more and discuss your project.

Based in Munich, Germany, with offices in New York and Shanghai, NavVis has customers worldwide in the surveying, AEC, and manufacturing industries. For more information, visit
