Trimble touts MX-9 as ‘next-gen’ mobile mapping system

By on 13 February, 2018

Trimble’s MX-9 mobile mapping station.

The new Trimble MX-9 combines a vehicle-mounted mobile lidar system, multi-camera imaging and field software into a single package that the company claims combines high-quality performance, simple installation and easy operation.

The Trimble MX9 captures dense point cloud data along with 360 degree immersive geo-referenced imagery using a spherical camera, GNSS/INS technology and dual-head laser scanning sensors. The company says the system’s innovative and lightweight design facilitates easy installation and setup on a variety of vehicles.

Trimble says the system can capture spatial data at highway speeds from inside the vehicle for safe operation in transportation corridors, utilising browser-based field software that is accessible via most tablets or any notebook.

“We believe there’s a tremendous potential for a system that offers high-quality performance, simple installation and easy operation,” said Ron Bisio, vice president of Trimble Geospatial. “Being able to capture high-fidelity and survey-grade data for a whole project site, a complete city or even a statewide road-network allows our customers to use mobile mapping data for a variety of surveying, engineering and mapping applications.”

Trimble added that a GNSS Azimuth Measurement System (GAMS) and a Distance Measurement Instrument (DMI) will be available for the MX-9 as optional accessories.
