ST. GALLEN, Switzerland — Milrem AS and Leica Geosystems AG have announced the Pegasus Multiscope, an unmanned ground vehicle for off-road use in surveying, security and monitoring applications.
For automated border patrols, the multiscope can follow a preprogrammed route and detect disturbances. Using the cameras calibrated to the 3D point cloud, change detection with Leica MapFactory for AutoCAD can be seen within 2 to 3 cm. If more detailed base maps are required, thermal imaging is also available.
For civil engineering use, the system is able to more easily and cost-effectively traverse potentially dangerous or difficult areas such as unstable riverbanks when surveying for dam construction. Ground level autonomous monitoring of large-scale farming offers the potential of real-time essential data for improved productivity. The multiscope can provide the data for critical agricultural decisions such as smart monitoring for field drainage or ripeness.
