Emesent Hovermap ST

Launched in February 2022, the Hovermap ST is the newly improved version of the original Hovermap, setting a new standard in autonomous survey-grade LiDAR mapping systems.

Candrone is an authorized Emesent Hovermap ST dealer for North America, contact us to learn how the Hovermap can improve your LiDAR workflow.

Navigate and map areas where no other drone has gone before 

The tap-to-fly autonomy feature allows you to autonomously navigate inaccessible environments beyond the line of sight and communication range. In addition, the Hovermap ST utilizes the LiDAR data to actively provide collision avoidance, guided exploration, and smart return-to-home in underground environments where there is no GPS. 

Tougher and lighter

The new IP65 weather-sealed design enables you to map and navigate even more challenging environments. Fly and scan longer than before with a compact and lightweight design. 

Precision mapping

The Hovermap ST produces highly accurate LiDAR maps for engineering, surveys, or inspection applications powered by an industry-leading SLAM algorithm. In addition, the new automated ground control feature in the Emesent software makes it easier than ever to capture dense shadowless survey-grade point clouds. Place surveyed Emesent’s ground control targets in your scan area, and the software will automatically detect and apply a transformation to the point cloud. 

4-in-1 Versatility

Go from aerial scanning to mobile scanning in seconds.

Key System specifications

  • Weight: 1.6 kg (3.63 lb)
  • Supported drones: DJI M210v1, DJI M300, Acecore Zoe
  • LiDAR range: 0.40m to 100m
  • LiDAR accuracy: +/- 30 mm
  • Mapping accuracies:
    ± 20 mm (3/4 in) in general environments
    ± 15 mm (19/32 in) in typical indoor and underground environments
    ± 5 mm (7/32 in) isolated change detection capability

Two levels of autonomy are available as add-ons:

Autonomy level 1: Pilot assist mode

The Hovermap ST will serve as an Omnidirectional collision avoidance system that essentially creates a safety bubble around your drone in a GPS-denied environment—preventing collision with assets during a line of sight flight operation.

Autonomy level 2: Autonomous waypoints

Tap-to-fly enables beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) navigation and mapping of inaccessible areas. This capability allows for autonomous navigation and mapping with a simple tap on the map generated by the Hovermap in real-time while protecting the system from a collision. For example, smart return-to-home capability typically requires GPS to navigate back; the Hovermap can return to home autonomously using the SLAM and LiDAR technology.
