Teledyne Flir is now shipping its new Ladybug6 camera for high accuracy 360° spherical image capture.

The high-resolution unit is designed to capture images from moving platforms in all weather conditions. Applications include panoramic street image production, road and asset inspections, and feature extraction for HD map generation.

Mike Lee, senior product manager at Teledyne Flir, says: “For applications that require high accuracy imaging like high-definition mapping, road surveying and asset inspection, the Ladybug6 gives users precision trigger control and resolution in a field-proven format.”

The manufacturer says support for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and advanced APIs, combined with hardware inputs, enable precise camera settings and trigger control.

Ladybug6's industrial-grade design and out-of-the-box factory calibration produce 72 Megapixel (MP) images with pixel values that are spatially accurate within +/- 2 mm at a 10m distance.
