Emesent is a world-leader in drone autonomy, LiDAR mapping, and data analytics. Founded in 2018, Emesent has since built a reputation for delivering high-quality data capture in the mining, infrastructure, survey and mapping industries.
Their flagship product, Hovermap, is a smart mobile scanning unit that combines advanced collision avoidance and autonomous flight technologies to map hazardous and GPS-denied environments.
Its award-winning technology utilizes innovative hardware, advanced algorithms and machine learning to automate collection and analysis of the physical world. Equally capable above ground or underground, indoors or out, Hovermap is a complete mobile LiDAR mapping solution. Hovermap is uniquely versatile, it can be handheld, drone- or vehicle-mounted to map challenging, inaccessible areas enabling our customers to gain insights that were not possible before.
With multiple applications across several industries and a rapidly growing customer base, Hovermap and our other solutions are being used commercially for a variety of applications by enterprise customers around the world.
In mining, safety and productivity are the driving forces behind continuous improvement and innovation. Leading mining companies strive to enhance profitability by increasing productivity while still focussing on safety to reduce risk. In mining, especially underground, this is even more challenging. Presently, the only way to obtain 3D information and data on underground voids and assets is to send people and equipment into areas of very limited access and that pose a large risk on human lives.
Emesent’s Hovermap solves the issue of obtaining data from inaccessible surroundings. Hovermap is rapidly changing how we mine, providing access to valuable data well beyond the traditional safe operation areas, gaining insights in places never possible before while providing digital twins of entire mines in a matter of hours. Speed and accuracy are crucial; being able to collect quality data to make informed decisions is vital in Mining.
