Prisma Group avoids dangerous environments with Leica Pegasus:Backpack
As the world population grows and global changes in building and infrastructure construction become more rapid, our need to document this growth and change increases. Referred to as wearable reality capture sensor systems, this new concept is shaping how measurement professionals come to understand and shape the world among them. The Leica Pegasus:Backpack was invented as part of this generation of new wearable reality capture sensor systems in response to the growing global changes. The Prisma Group was the first company to use the Pegasus:Backpack in its recent rail infrastructure project.
Based in the Netherlands, the Prisma Group consists of three companies: Prisma Meten, Prisma Geocensus and Prisma Van Steenis. The company has a variety of specialities including survey (rail, infrastructure, utility), industry (offshore and onshore), GIS, hydrography, geodetic measurements, 3D laser scanning, monitoring and mobile mapping.
“Using wearable reality capture enabled us to realise many benefits over traditional surveying techniques,” said Prisma Director Klaas de Weerd. “With Leica Pegasus:Backpack, every spot in the rail yard was reachable. We also did not have to implement extra safety measures since there was no need for us to enter high-risks areas: we could simply capture the data from a safe distance. Finally, we saw great time savings due to error-free data acquisition in a baseline survey that will allow us to accurately monitor any changes to the design in the future.”
