HOVERMAP™ - ZOE
TRUSTED. ROBUST. AUTONOMOUS.
Hovermap – Zoe is the powerful combination of Hovermap’s autonomy and mapping capability with the robust European-made drone platform, Zoe. Through seamless integration, Hovermap enables the Zoe drone to fly beyond line of sight and communication range — even in challenging GPS-denied environments.
With Hovermap’s collision avoidance, users can stably and safely maneuver up close to, inside, or underneath assets to map them and capture detailed images.
Equally capable above ground or underground, indoors or out, the Hovermap – Zoe combination is the ideal tool for the mapping and inspection of complex structures, including sensitive government assets, bridges, communications towers, buildings, and many more.
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT HOVERMAP - ZOE
TRUSTED. ROBUST. AUTONOMOUS.
Hovermap is lightweight and yet robust enough to withstand the demands of environments such as underground mines. Made from a machined aircraft-grade aluminum frame combined with carbon fiber composite paneling, the Hovermap payload is light yet strong enough to support its rotating LiDAR while remaining stable in flight. Switching between drone to walking scans can be done with the click of a button using Hovermap’s quick-release mechanism.
WHY CHOOSE HOVERMAP - ZOE
SCAN THE INACCESSIBLE
Hovermap’s autonomy enables flight and mapping in challenging situations, including beyond visual line of sight, inaccessible, or GPS-denied environments. Venture into previously inaccessible areas to access new, valuable insights.
A COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION TOOL
Map complex assets, such as telecommunication towers, bridges, or building facades, safely and thoroughly by adding a top mount camera (optional). Hovermap’s adjustable collision avoidance sphere ensures a safe stand-off distance is maintained from the asset at all times.
Capture shadowless, high-resolution data for accurate measurements, volumetrics, or other analyses in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional methods. Create complete digital twins using multiple merged scans.
END TO END SOLUTION
From data capture to a final CAD or BIM model, the Hovermap workflow is easy to implement. The data captured is rapidly processed via the Emesent processing software and can then be imported into any mainstream CAD package as .las, or .laz files for manipulation or analysis.
SAFER BRIDGE INSPECTIONS
Hovermap-Zoe allows safe, comprehensive visual inspection and mapping of every part of a bridge. Hovermap’s autonomy, GPS-denied flight, and adjustable collision avoidance enable safe access from the tallest tower to under the deck. Zoe’s ability to carry both Hovermap and a gimballed, full-frame, top mount camera enables the capture of high-resolution inspection images anywhere. Preview the scan data captured in real-time, and leave the site confident you’ve captured everything you need.
OPTIONS FOR EVERY SCANNING NEED
AUTONOMY LEVEL 0
Mapping Mode offers fast, accurate, and high resolution mobile scanning of environments where drone autonomy is unnecessary. Hovermap’s quick-release mechanism allows you to easily switch from a Zoe to handheld scanning or a backpack-, vehicle-, or protective shaft scanning cage-mount for SLAM-based mobile mapping.
AUTONOMY LEVEL 1
PILOT ASSIST MODE
Confidently get closer to structures to capture better data with safe line of sight flight provided by Hovermap’s LiDAR-based omnidirectional collision avoidance and GPS-denied stability control.
AUTONOMY LEVEL 2
Fly beyond visual line of sight and communication range with Hovermap’s Tap-to-Fly by setting waypoints using the live map.
Add a new level of reality capture to your 3D point clouds with Hovermap’s colorization feature.
The 3D point clouds from Hovermap can be augmented with true color, providing additional context for visualization and analysis. Colorization provides greater insights across a variety of applications, revealing previously hidden details in your critical infrastructure.
FULLY INTEGRATED PLATFORM
Hovermap’s autonomy is integrated with ArduPilot at its core and runs on the Cube hardware, providing complete control of all elements of the flight controller and an extremely robust solution. You have the option of either the Cube Orange or the Cube Blue, made in America.
The ArduPilot compatibility will enable Hovermap integration with many more drone platforms going forward.
