Emesent – HOVERMAP ™

emesent hovermap payload product


The versatile SLAM based mapper, making data capture fast and simple.

HoverMap was designed to provide an autonomous scanning solution in inaccessible areas. It is a rugged, light-weight mobile scanning unit that can be handheld or quickly mounted to a drone via its quick release mechanism. This allows you to collect data from the ground or from the air and automatically merge the data from both.

HoverMap acts as a safety bubble around your drone. It prevents any collisions from happening in tight places and helps it navigate around obstacles. It does this by processing Lidar information in real-time to produce 3D maps of its surroundings. Since HoverMap relies on Lidar information. You can fly in GPS-denied environments.

With HoverMap you can collect data fast and simply


Hovermap is lightweight, and yet robust enough to withstand the demands of environments such as underground mines. Made from a machined aircraft-grade aluminium frame combined with carbon fibre composite panelling, the Hovermap payload is light yet strong enough to support its rotating LiDAR while remaining stable in flight. Switching between drone to hand held scans can be done with the click of a button using Hovermap’s quick release mechanism.
