Overwhelming response to new surveying technology at Central Alliance Mobile Mapping Demo Day

Over 50 delegates gathered at the Central Alliance Mobile Mapping Demo Day at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to find out more about the ROBIN LiDAR mapping system that is set to drive a surveying revolution.

This demo day focused on the ground-breaking ROBIN LiDAR mapping system that allows the user to map a variety of areas via walking, driving or flying.  Delegates gathered from a variety of industry sectors across the country to find out more about how this mobile mapping technology is transforming and challenging traditional surveying methods. The message was clear, for many projects, the use of this new technology will improve the quality of measurements, increase the safety of staff and ultimately save money.

This survey / data capture only took around 5 minutes!

Neil Tissington, Divisional Director for Survey at Central Alliance, explained during the demo: “The potential for this technology to take 3D modelling on projects as standard is clearly huge and will further benefit clients who are looking to move towards a more complete asset management/BIM strategy”.

Richard Pidcock, Technical Director of Central Alliance, commented: “A key focus for Central Alliance is to help transform the construction industry through innovation, unlocking the business value of available technology and using it to improve outcomes and save money at every stage of the pre-construction process.  We are right at the start of a new era of high quality, mass data capture in the pre-construction industry. Central Alliance aims to be a leader in this new era”.
