The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ by Peck Tech Consulting Ltd. is truly a unique sensor. Since its launch, this product has provided underground mine operators and their engineering staff with new and faster methods of creating large-scale 3D point clouds. These rich data sets can be used for a wide variety of value-add applications, such as geotechnical monitoring tasks. The differentiator: scan data is collected while in motion.
For example, in order to keep underground mines as safe as possible and optimize production, it is important for mine engineers to regularly perform tasks such as ground support risk assessments and convergence monitoring. Until now, these were tedious and time-consuming tasks using conventional methods such as visual inspections (i.e., on foot) or stationary, tripod-mounted laser scanners. Because the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ is able to generate 3D point clouds while on the move (e.g. mounted on a vehicle moving through the mine at normal operating speed), this vital information is quickly and easily available.
uGPS Rapid Mapper™ has become a trusted name in mobile underground scanning, being the first to hit the market with a purpose-built and purpose-designed sensor for the underground environment. This product is truly in a league of its own– but what sets it apart? Why is it the mobile scanning product of choice for the underground mining industry?
Follow this link to our FAQ section, where we provide a list of several pertinent questions (and answers) for customers looking to invest in a mobile scanning product for their operation.
We are confident that after reviewing this list, you will be fully convinced that the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ remains the best choice for 3D mapping in your underground mine.
