Meet ROBIN, the world’s most flexible mobile mapping system.

With several mounting options, ROBIN can be used across multiple platforms, providing the ability to map areas via
WALK | DRIVE | FLY.
Lightweight and portable, ROBIN is designed to be operated by one person, enabling fast deployment to site even in remote and difficult to access locations, making it suitable for a range of applications and environments.

ROBIN can be used for the following applications:

WALK

  • Asset Mapping
  • Forest Mapping
  • Indoor Mapping
  • Building Information Modelling/BIM

DRIVE

  • Asset Mapping
  • Surface Maintenance
  • Highways
  • Civil Engineering
  • Rail Mapping
  • Coastal Mapping

FLY

  • Topographic Mapping
  • Agriculture
  • Forestry
  • Coastal Mapping

ROBIN is a 3-in-1 mobile mapping system that can be used on different platforms.

The mounting system transforms for each configuration:

  • Walk – Backpack mount with 2 x antennas
  • Drive – Vehicle mount to fit to standard roof bars with 2 x antennas
  • Fly – Ultra-Lightweight mount for airborne applications*

*ROBIN +WINGS is an additional system add-on for users wishing to mount their system to a helicopter

ROBIN system add-ons are available including:

  • ROBIN +WINGS – Long range laser scanner optimised for airborne applications
  • ROBIN +PRECISION – High accuracy laser scanner optimised for shorter range, more detailed data capture
  • ROBIN +SLAM – System add on to allow the system to be used indoors
  • Application Software:
    • Terrasolid
    • Orbit GT mobile mapping software

“As we work in a variety of sectors, we needed to consider how this purchase would support the needs of our clients. ROBIN means that we will be able to collect more data in a shorter period of time, with less people, even in remote or difficult to access locations. ROBIN also enables Central Alliance and their clients to meet health and safety obligations by doing everything reasonably practicable to minimise exposure and therefore risks associated with staff on site’”

“We’ve also received first class training and support from 3D Laser Mapping and believe that customers will be extremely pleased with the comprehensive data we can provide using the ROBIN.”

− Rachel Massey, Group Business Director – Central Alliance

“Geoterra is very excited about the launch of the new ROBIN multi-platform mobile mapping system. It’s become evident that there’s a gap in the sector for this kind of product and we’re sure it’ll prove to be an extremely popular addition to the market place.”

− Mark Hudson, Managing Director Geoterra

The system can be initialised in just 5 minutes - once this has been done the system can be started straight away.
ROBIN is supplied with processing software to enable you to produce a georeferenced pointcloud. For more detailed point classification, data cleaning, orthophotos etc.. application software can be purchased. - we can supply and train customers on ORBIT GT or TERRASOLID software.
The standard system package includes:
  • 3-in-1 mounting system
  • Laser Sensor
  • GIS-Grade Navigation System
  • 2 x cameras
  • 2 x GNSS antennas
  • Touch screen control unit
  • MMProcess software for generating a geo-referenced pointcloud
  • 4 x days training
  • Technical support
For WALK/DRIVE mode the weight is just under 10Kg, for FLY mode the system weighs just under 6Kg
Not currently but an add-on to the system (ROBIN-SLAM) will be launched later this year which will enable the system to be used indoors.
Either click here to email us and set up a demo or give one of our regional offices a call to speak to a member of our sales team - click here for contact detail.
Yes - please contact us here and we will email you a link to download some data in .las format.
No - we have left the choice of UAV/UAS platform up to the customer due to the many options available on the market. The weight of ROBIN for FLY mode has been reduced to below 6Kg meaning that a full UAV/UAS laser scanning system can be kept below 20Kg if required.

We have a selection of pointcloud animations available to view on You Tube
