iSTAR Pulsar collaborations on show at INTERGEO 2018

GeoSLAM and Orbit GT to demonstrate innovations using iSTAR Pulsar data; NCTech to showcase new AI capabilities for identifying objects in 360 images

 NCTech, a developer of reality imaging systems, will next week showcase its iSTAR Pulsar mobile 360-degree data capture system at the INTERGEO conference and tradeshow. Companies at INTERGEO, including GeoSLAM and Orbit Geospatial Technologies will also unveil innovative developments that incorporate iSTAR Pulsar.

iSTAR Pulsar is NCTech’s professional edge-to-cloud big data system, optimized for capture on the move. iSTAR Pulsar is designed to capture 360-degree data while mounted on a vehicle, drone or on foot.

At INTERGEO, NCTech will be showing a demo of a future feature in its cloud-based processing software VR.WORLD that uses artificial intelligence and image recognition to analyse the images captured by iSTAR Pulsar. This means that objects like cars, trucks, traffic lights, road signs, pedestrians and cyclists can be automatically identified in images.

Handheld 3D mobile mapping leader GeoSLAM will introduce new developments at INTERGEO, including an innovation that integrates with iSTAR Pulsar.

“We immediately saw the potential for collaboration when NCTech introduced the iSTAR Pulsar,” said Mark Reid, Head of Strategic Business Development, GeoSLAM. “And now we’re excited to show the attendees at INTERGEO what we’ve been working on.”

Orbit GT has updated its mobile mapping software to enable iSTAR Pulsar data to be integrated into its smart 3D mapping solutions.

“We’re very pleased to announce that Orbit GT solutions now support data from NCTech’s iSTAR Pulsar,” said Peter Bonne, CEO, Orbit GT. “We’ll be showcasing the great 360 degree imagery captured by iSTAR Pulsar at our booth.”

“We launched iSTAR Pulsar earlier this year, so it’s great to see that key industry players like GeoSLAM and Orbit GT are already leveraging its capabilities in their own developments,” said Andrew Baddeley, Technical Sales Director, NCTech. “Combined with the exciting new AI developments from our labs, we look forward to showing everyone at INTERGEO how we are helping to virtualize the world!”

{articles|100|campaign}Japan-based Terra Drone acquires significant stake in Inkonova.

Terra Drone, a leading global commercial drone technology company , acquires a significant stake in Swedish aerial robotics for underground mining startup, Inkonova AB

Terra Drone’s UAV inspection, survey, and other service provisions cover various industries globally including mining; Inkonova’s main market.

The deal is comprised of a cash injection, changes to the management team, as well as technical, business development, and operational collaborations.

Ahmed AlNomany, InkonovaAB Cofounder and CEO stated “We feel reinforced, a sort of graduation.Terra Drone’s global network of clients, post-processing domain, service-based business model, customer experience, technical personnel, and human and financial resources, will help us dramatically ramp our business development and commercial-readiness efforts, taking our technology to the next level.”

Inkonova will supply Terra Drone with its UAV core technology, including anti-dust and waterproof platforms (as in the TILT Ranger) and infrastructure-denied autonomous navigation (as in the Batonomous), while Terra Drone, apart from financing, – will employ its global clients, local offices, pilots, post-processing capacity, and broader commercial and technical domain expertise.

Mr.Toru Tokushige, Founder and CEO of Terra Motors Corporation and Terra Drone Corporation, who will be appointed as a board member, stated, “it is a prerequisite to rapidly expand the integration of mining field services with other reliable Terra Drone partners based around the globe.. Underground mining still has huge issues, according to the statistisc from The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the number of lost-time injuries in 2015 was 4,517 in America, and those of other developing counties were incomparably high. So, I hope the cooperation between Terra Drone, with its broad network and innovative technologies and Inkonova, the eminent company for mining drone services contributes to the rapid and further technical improvements for underground safety and productivity.”

In line with the partnership, Inkonova’s products will undergo a rebranding to streamline with Terra Drone products, details of which will be announced later this month.

■Inkonova AB

Inkonova AB is a Swedish Aerial Robotics company, No1 serving the underground mining sector globally. Its products include aerial platforms, and aerial autonomous navigation/mapping solutions that are customized to the constraints of underground mines, and subterranean or constricted industrial spaces.

■Terra Drone Corporation
Terra Drone is a leading global commercial drone technology company and has 10 subsidiaries in Japan, APAC, EU, Africa, North America, and South America. Terra Drone mainly focuses on Mining, Construction, Energy Utility, and Oil&Gas applications. For these industries, we provide turnkey packages including cutting-edge hardware, software, service on site, and UTM(Unmanned Traffic Management). Our group company, Terra Motors, manufactures and sells innovative electric two-wheelers and three wheelers throughout Asia. Sales figures are above 30,000 per unit.
