Headquartered in the US, the UK, Australia, and South Africa, GeoSLAM deals in 3D geospatial technologies and solutions. In appreciation, most of these solutions are handheld.
Principally, SLAM or Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, a technology pioneered by the likes of Sebastian Thrun (Of Probabilistic Robotics and Udacity fame) and Deiter Fox ( Probabilistic Robotics and NVIDIA), uses temporal, sensory, and inertial data to simultaneously map and locate an object and its surroundings through iterative estimates.
Notably, the company promises fast and accurate 3D scans and point cloud generation, as well as GPS free operation in cramped and inaccessible spaces like tunnels, mines, and cliff-faces. Even more, it operates at the frontier of a cutting-edge domain changing rapidly with advances in sensors, algorithms, and approaches to SLAM.
In this paradigm, it leads engineering innovation from the very front and pushes the envelope with radical approaches to SLAM. Also, it’s home to world-renowned technology experts and intellectual property in the technology.
