WGAN-TV on Location at Geo Week 2024 | Pitch the Press EventMosaic Co-Founder Jeffrey Martin at Geo Week 2024 Shows Mobile Mapping CameraTranscript- How's it going? My name's Jeffrey Martin. I'm the Co-Founder and CEO of Mosaic.We are a mobile-mapping camera company.Our general thesis is that as computing improves and various algorithms improve, it becomes less and less important to use high-end LiDAR, which is extremely expensive, cumbersome, and hard to use. Companies such as Trimble, Hexagon, and others are stuck in an innovator's dilemma.And we are coming after you because we don't need these extremely expensive lasers anymore.You can achieve even better results in a fraction of the time of data collection using photogrammetry. And in many cases, you can get even more detailed 3D model using photogrammetry. So while we do use LiDAR as well, we take a camera-first point of view.So both with the devices that go on the cars as well as the device on my back, we have extremely high-resolution cameras with very high image quality with a very high level of synchronization and a very good calibration of the optical properties of the cameras that allow users to derive measurements and create 3D models, point clouds, and textured meshes with ease.
