Emesent announced Hovermap autonomy and payload is now plug-and-play compatible with Zoe aircraft from Acecore Technologies. The integration allows Zoe to fly beyond line of sight and communication range, even in GPS-denied environments.

Hovermap provides omnidirectional, LiDAR-based, collision avoidance and stable GPS-denied flight, and is used at mines around the world, Emesent reported. It allows users to fly up close to, inside or underneath assets to map them and capture images. This includes stopes, draw points and ore passes.
