Murphy Surveys becomes the first survey company in the UK and Ireland to invest in the Leica RTC360, the world’s first 3D laser scanner with automatic in-field pre-registration launched this week at HxGN Live
Through our continued commitment to invest in the latest innovation and state of the art technology, we’re pleased to announce our investment in the world’s first 3D laser scanner with automatic in-field pre-registration, the Leica RTC360. The technology was announced at HxGN Live, Hexagon’s annual digital technology conference in Las Vegas and simultaneously at a UK launch event at Hexagon’s UK Headquarters in Milton Keynes. We are the first survey company in the UK and Ireland to invest in the new scanner, reaffirming our position as a pioneer in the use of laser scanning technology.
“Murphy Surveys was and always will be the forefront of technological development. From our humble begins in the 1980’s my father Peter Murphy was a trailblazer in the use of innovation to support our clients in their data capture needs, comments Colin Murphy, Director, Murphy Surveys. “His passion and relentless pursuit of progression is woven into the fabric of our organisation and we have continued over the years to partner with some of the world’s leading technology companies, striving to deliver the best possible service to our clients.”
“Leica Geosystems has been with us throughout this journey and when the new scanner was launched earlier this week, we instantly recognised it as a game changer for our service offering. Its ultra-high performance makes it twice as fast than any other scanner, allowing us to capture more data than ever before, and its ability to pre-register captured scans in the field will allow us decrease processing time and deliver data to our clients much quicker. The scanner is intelligent and knows exactly where it is. Using VIS (visual inertial system) cameras to track 3D coordinates of features, like the edges of a door, the floor, or a window, therefore tracking position as the surveyor moves within a room, between rooms, or even between floors, enabling us to do our job faster, easier and with greater accuracy.”
The new scanners will be supplied through SCCS and will augment our existing fleet of laser scanners. They will be integrated into our service offering in July.
