HERON: The New Real Time Mapping and Tracking Wearable System

October 26th, 2016, Brescia (Italy) – Great success at INTERGEO (Hamburg, Germany) for HERON, the innovative indoor/outdoor real time mapping and tracking wearable system, with integrated software, developed by Gexcel and European Commission Joint Research Centre.

HERON is capable to support real time 3D measurements both in industrial plants and underground mining applications. HERON does not use GNSS or precise IMU sensors, but just a clever and advanced algorithm.

Real time mapping, automatic localization, real time change detection system. This absolute innovative approach to manage the real time mapping and tracking indoor projects is opening new possibilities for industrial/nuclear plants surveying and tracking, underground mining, forest mapping.
