The BLK2GO handheld imaging laser scanner is said to be the first-of-its-kind mobile scanner that can scan complex spaces efficiently and quickly due to its LiDAR, SLAM (simultaneous localisation and mapping) and edge computing technologies.

The laser scanner can capture 3D environments while the user is in motion, and generate 3D point clouds continuously. Compact in design, the unit allows access to spaces that may have been difficult or impossible to scan before.

Combining two-axis LiDAR with visual SLAM technologies, the BLK2GO will accurately follow a user’s trajectory while scanning. When used with the iOS app, users can get live feedback, check the device status, or do quick data inspection.
