Leica Geosystem’s new handheld imaging laser scanner

The BLK2GO is a wireless handheld imaging laser scanner that captures 3D environments while the user is in motion, and continuously creates a digital representation of reality in the form of 3D point clouds.


Leica Geosystems has announced the Leica BLK2GO handheld imaging laser scanner, a first-of-its-kind mobile scanner designed to scan complex spaces with efficiency and speed thanks to LiDAR, SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) and edge computing technologies, which enables professionals to expand their reality capture capabilities.

The BLK2GO is a wireless handheld imaging laser scanner that captures 3D environments while the user is in motion, and continuously creates a digital representation of reality in the form of 3D point clouds.

The BLK2GO’s compact design allows access to spaces and objects that may have been difficult or impossible to scan before. With simple, one-button operation and a lightweight design, it is easy to use.

Combining two-axis LiDAR with visual SLAM technologies, the BLK2GO has spatial awareness to know where it is and where it has been in space and will follow a user’s trajectory while scanning. When used with the iOS app, users can get live feedback while scanning, check the device status, or do quick data inspection.

The BLK2GO is expected to be available in October 2019.
