BLK2GO Technology

 

The BLK2GO packs cutting edge technology into a small lightweight design that does the hard work for you.

 

GrandSLAM

BLK2GO's GrandSLAM technology combines LiDAR SLAM, Visual SLAM, and an IMU to deliver best-in-class handheld mobile mapping performance. Gain speed and confidence when capturing including large indoor, outdoor, underground, complex, and multi-level spaces.

LiDAR SLAM

The BLK2GO identifies different surfaces and unique geometry in the LiDAR data, which it analyzes to calculate its 3D position.

Visual SLAM

Three panoramic cameras identify similarities between consecutive images to calculate the scanner’s movement through 3D space.

IMU

While you walk, the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) senses your movement to calculate the BLK2GO’s change of position in 3D space.
