Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, has introduced Leica Pegasus TRK, a reality capture mobile mapping system that makes use of artificial intelligence, autonomous workflows and intuitive interfaces.

Its advanced dynamic laser scanning and expandible imagery system for recording, measuring and visualising environments is designed to increase productivity with automated, intelligent workflows.

Light enough to be operated by one person, the Pegasus TRK features an AI-enhanced camera and automatic camera calibration. To comply with privacy regulations, its AI can identify and blur identifiers, such as people and vehicles, in real time.

It enables long-range mobile mapping for applications in asset management; road construction; rail and critical infrastructure; oil, gas and electricity industries; and more. The system can also create high-definition base maps for autonomous vehicles.

The system is engineered to connect with Leica Pegasus Field software for fully autonomous and secure data collection and route planning in the field. It also connects with the company’s Leica Cyclone Pegasus Office for seamless input into post-processing and publishing workflows.
