Be fully autonomous with our laser scanning module for robots.
Reality capture takes another step forward with the Leica BLK ARC, an autonomous laser scanning module that integrates with robots. The BLK ARC, combined with a robotic carrier, performs fully autonomous scanning and navigation with GrandSLAM technology, offers remote and offline scan mission planning, and provides complete control through a browser-based interface. Integration with a variety of robotic carriers makes the BLK ARC an essential component to autonomous reality capture, and it is ready to scan wherever you tell it to go.
