Compact, High Density 3D Mobile Mapping System

The IP-S3 mobile mapping system offers high density, high precision, point clouds combined with high resolution panoramas from a system that is smaller, lighter and easier to handle.

IP-S3’s positioning system is an integration of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), GNSS receiver (GPS and GLONASS) and a vehicle odometer. It provides precise positioning and attitude in a dynamic environment.

The rotating LiDAR sensor captures the environment with a rate of 700,000 pulses per second. During each rotation, the 32 internal lasers cover the full 360 degrees around the system, each from a slightly different viewing angle. This minimizes gaps in the point cloud which arise from obstacles or dead-angles and removes the need to install multiple scanners.

IP-S3’s six-lens digital camera system provides 360 degree high resolution spherical images that allow for easy feature recognition.
Mobile Master Office software handles all post processing trajectories and geo-referencing scans and images.

  • Integrated turnkey solution
  • Ultra compact design
  • Multiple lasers minimize scanning shades
  • Unparalleled ease of use
  • Factory calibrated
  • Full integration of cloud and images


Speed up Mapping Workflows

Topcon mobile mapping systems are the perfect solution when a massive amount of asset data needs to be collected in a short amount of time. By mounting a mapping system with various integrated sensors (GNSS, laser scanner, camera, IMU, wheel encoders) to a vehicle, users get all field data quickly. Just drive at normal speeds and get locations and visual detail of all roadside features. There is no need to take time to revisit the field for missing points. Easy to use office software can then be used for viewing, processing, projecting and exporting data for GIS or CAD software.
