Kaarta Stencil 2

Kaarta Stencil® 2 is a low cost, customizable mobile mapping platform for rapid mobile scanning. It is a computer small enough to fit in your hand but powerful enough to process and view any of the data it captures. Stencil 2’s integrated 3D mapping and real-time position estimation allows capabilities not possible with fixed-base scanning systems.

The Stencil is designed to work seamlessly with the Velodyne VLP-16 and HDL-32E.
