Vehicle-Mounted System Enables Data Capture for Road Agencies and Local Governments

Trimble has introduced the Trimble® MX50 mobile mapping system for asset management and mapping—a new addition to its established mobile mapping portfolio.

This vehicle-mounted mobile LiDAR system is a mid-range option for first-time mobile mapping users and experienced providers to expand their equipment fleet with precise, high-volume data capture technology that works in conjunction with Trimble’s geospatial software solutions.

Practical system collects high-accuracy data

By providing clean and accurate data of ground surfaces, the Trimble MX50 is a practical choice for:

  • highway and road inspection and maintenance organizations
  • survey companies wanting to expand their service capabilities
  • city, state and local governments
  • public utilities
  • contractors

The Trimble MX50 features new Trimble-designed profiling lasers for high-accuracy data collection, a 360-degree panoramic camera and a GNSS/IMU positioning system from Applanix, a Trimble Company.

The system produces dense point clouds and immersive imagery for surveying and mapping accuracy, and works with Applanix POSPac, Trimble Business Center and the Trimble MX software suite.

Trimble MX50 expands mobile mapping options

The Trimble MX50 also expands the company’s mobile mapping portfolio, which includes the widely adopted Trimble MX9 system for large scanning and mapping missions and the highly portable Trimble MX7 for capturing precisely positioned street-level imagery.

“The Trimble MX50 reduces the complexity of mobile mapping while enabling users to be more productive and efficient in mapping and managing assets, and maintaining highways and roads,” said Jacek Pietruczanis, business area Director for Mobile Mapping, Trimble Geospatial. “Combined with Trimble’s complete software field-to-finish workflow, the MX50 enables users to take control of the data they have captured from the comfort and safety of their vehicle.”

The Trimble MX50 is available now through Trimble Geospatial Distribution Partners. For more information, visit: geospatial.trimble.com/products-and-solutions/trimble-mx50.
