Hexagon AB has launched its Leica BLK ARC and the Leica BLK2FLY for autonomous mobile reality capture.  The Leica BLK ARC is a laser scanning sensor for the autonomous navigation of robots and other carrier platforms to deliver fully autonomous mobile laser scanning, the company said.

With the Leica BLK2FLY, users can quickly and easily scan structures and environments accurately and entirely from the air, the company said.  The BLK ARC and BLK2FLY connect directly to Hexagon’s cloud-based visualisation platform, HxDR, the company said.

The first robotic compatibility for the BLK ARC is with the Boston Dynamics Spot. Enhancing Spot with autonomous reality capture technology, the BLK ARC delivers fully autonomous mobile laser scanning specifically designed for robots, the company said.
