Autonomous Laser Scanning Module


BLK ARC is an autonomous laser scanning module for robots. It can be integrated with robotic carriers to enable autonomous mobile laser scanning.

The BLK ARC mounts to different types of robots, using its sensors along with the robot's sensors to create fully autonomous and repeatable scan missions.

Capture 3D point clouds and panoramic imagery while your robot carries BLK ARC through an environment.


BLK ARC combined with robotic carriers creates a fast, simple, safe, and autonomous laser scanning workflow.

Chart your scan path remotely using existing drawings or BIM models of your building, including large and complex spaces.

BLK ARC and your robot will complete the mission autonomously.

BLK ARC and ANYmal from ANYbotics create an autonomous way to inspect challenging environments

Once your mission is complete, your data is ready to use.



The BLK ARC is a versatile laser scanning module that can work with multiple different types of robotic carriers.

Our first robotic carrier is the Boston Dynamics Spot robot. Spot combined with BLK ARC delivers fully autonomous and repeatable scan missions.

ANYmal from ANYbotics is a robot that integrates with the Leica BLK ARC for autonomous reality capture. Using the BLK ARC, ANYmal creates detailed 3D models. The BLK ARC deeply integrates with the robot’s operating interface and generates a high precision digital twin instantly.

Summit XL from Robotnik is an advanced all-terrain wheeled robot that, combined with the BLK ARC, autonomously navigates difficult environments. Managed by remote control or operating on its own, the BLK ARC with Summit XL collects spatial data to map environments and create detailed 3D models.

Optional add-on:

Leica GA03 BLK GNSS SmartAntenna

Keep track of your BLK ARC on Spot during difficult outdoor missions with our multi-frequency Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) solution, which combines with the BLK ARC's onboard GrandSLAM technology for accurate position information. All seamlessly integrated into our BLK ARC-UI for smooth operation.
