NavVis Presents New Indoor Mobile Mapping System

The company’s new M6 model features 6D simultaneous localization and mapping technologies, a mobile-LiDAR system, four laser scanners and six cameras.

NavVis—a manufacturer of digital-building technology for commercial properties—has introduced the new M6, an indoor mobile mapping, visualization and navigation system. Surveyors and AEC professionals can use the product for large-scale indoor mapping projects, factory planning, to create and update BIM models and construction monitoring. The M6 can scan all indoor environments, including uneven terrain or changing elevations, such as ramps, open spaces or long corridors.

The NavVis M6 captures 360-degree imagery, photo-realistic point clouds, Bluetooth beacons, Wi-Fi signals and magnetic-field data. The product features 6D simultaneous-localization and mapping technologies and a mobile-LiDAR system, having the capability to capture roughly 330,000 square feet per day. The M6 features four laser scanners and six cameras.

“The NavVis M6 marks a quantum leap in indoor mobile mapping. Anyone who needs to scan large properties, run repeated scans or would like to move into the field of reality capture will profit from the groundbreaking data quality. With M6, users can now quickly capture large, complex indoor environments for typical tasks such as updating floorplans, documenting construction progress or creating as-built BIM models. At the same time, M6 captures the data needed to provide customers with additional deliverables such as browser-based immersive walkthroughs and indoor navigation,” said Felix Reinshagen, CEO of NavVis, in prepared remarks.
