Metrocubico needed to capture 6000KM of street level imagery in Brazil. This is not very difficult and there is a wide variety of mobile mapping solutions out in the market who could do this. But...
During tender processes BAM needs to have a very clear overview of the situation and the geographical variances on the project location. This has a massive impact on the needed investments and BAM wants minimalize the financial risks.
But very often there is no time during a tender process for a time-consuming field research. So to stay ahead of the competition there is a need for a fast and a reliable intelligent solution.

Idea & Impact
BAM needed a proven mobile mapping system. In this case we recommended the Horus Citymapper. The Horus Citymapper is already a very reliable mobile system including the Flir Ladybug 5+ 360 camera and the Applanix GPS.
We added also a Velodyne Lidar and 4 high resolution camera’s to the Citymapper to capture street level imagery at the highest level. This could be easily done with the help of the Horus Framework. A sensor fusing platform that makes it very easy to combine sensor data.
But capturing and combining sensor data is just the beginning. BAM needed actionable data and therefore you need to put in extra intelligence. In this case we added AI for automated feature extraction and object recognition. Enable BAM to calculate different scenarios based on output (GIS data).
- Sensor information -> actionable data
- Clear situational overview no surprises in just 3 days instead of 18 days
- Smart investment calculator -> faster & more reliable calculations
Faster and more reliable calculations with AI drive actionable data
