Topcon announces IP-S2 HD Mapping System PDF Print E-mail

15 July 2010
LIVERMORE, Calif. – July 14, 2010 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) has announced an addition to its offering of high-accuracy, mobile mapping solutions – the IP-S2 HD Mapping System – a vehicle-mounted surveying and mapping system featuring a high-definition LiDAR scanner from Velodyne Lidar, Inc.


The IP-S2 HD Mapping System incorporates state-of-the-art technologies, including high-precision GNSS receivers, IMU (inertial measurement unit), vehicle wheel encoder, 360-degree digital cameras and Velodyne’s HDL-64E S2.2 LiDAR scanner. It is designed so users, while driving the system-mounted vehicle at normal traffic speeds, can collect precise vehicle position/bearing data and spherical imagery of roadside objects such as sidewalks, buildings, tunnels, bridges and overpasses. The addition of Velodyne’s LiDAR sensor is designed to allow vehicle operators to acquire very dense point clouds while traveling at posted speed limits even in inclement weather.

Velodyne Lidar, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of high definition LiDAR sensors, headquartered in Morgan Hill, California. The company’s HDL-64E sensor is used in a variety of military and commercial autonomous vehicle applications as well as 3-D mapping, surveying and other applications.

“Velodyne is very excited that Topcon has integrated our HDL-64E S2.2 sensor with the IP-S2 HD Mapping System,” said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne. “With the HDL-64E’s dense point coverage which outputs at over 1.3 million points per second, 64 lasers, full 360 degree field of view, and road-tested design, the system can collect data even in poor weather conditions. The IP-S2 HD Mapping System can capture data at highway speeds up to 70 miles per hour and its return on investment, compared to manual data collection methods, is realized in just a few months.”

Dave Henderson, TPS 3D mobile mapping national sales manager said, “With the IP-S2 HD, a single crew with a single user-supplied vehicle can acquire a complete dataset while driving, providing a revolutionary mobile data collection solution. Geo-referenced spatial data and colorful imagery allows users to easily identify features, assign attributes and export data to various CAD and GIS applications.

"The IP-S2 HD significantly increases safety by eliminating the risk of working in busy streets and highways, and allows for more coverage and increased productivity compared to traditional methods.  Users gain additional cost savings as the initial dataset can be accessed as frequently as needed and features can be extracted at any time, eliminating time-consuming returns to the field," Henderson said.


Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. (TPS) designs and manufactures precise positioning products and solutions for the global surveying, construction, agriculture, civil engineering, mapping and GIS, asset management and mobile control markets. TPS’ parent company, Topcon Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange – 7732), was founded in 1932.
