Building Tomorrow: AEC's Quantum Leap with 3D LiDAR Brilliance

In the ever-evolving landscape of Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industries, the integration of advanced technologies has become imperative for staying ahead of the curve. Among these technological marvels, 3D LiDAR camera scanners powered by Galois M2 from Realsee stand out as a transformative force, revolutionising design, construction, and project management.

Imagine capturing reality with millimeter precision, streamlining workflows, and boosting safety – all thanks to a single, advanced solution. That's the power of Galois M2.

Millimeter Precision and Accuracy:

Galois M2 isn't just about capturing data; it's about capturing reality with unparalleled accuracy. This powerful scanner emits thousands of laser pulses per second, measuring their return time to generate ultra-precise 3D point clouds. Think of it as creating a digital twin of your physical environment, capturing every minute detail with millimeter accuracy.

No more guesswork, no more surprises. With Galois M2, you have a solid foundation for making informed decisions every step of the way. Here's some data to illustrate the precision:

  • Galois M2 boasts an accuracy of <±20mm, exceeding industry standards and ensuring reliable data for even the most intricate projects.

  • A single scan captures over 1.2 millions of data points, providing an incredibly detailed picture of your site or structure.


  • Reduced errors and rework: The exceptional accuracy of Galois M2 data minimises the need for rework due to miscalculations or missed details, saving time and resources.

  • Improved clash detection: Identify potential clashes between different building components early on in the design phase, preventing costly rework and delays during construction.

  • Enhanced constructability: Gain a deeper understanding of site conditions and existing structures, facilitating informed decisions about constructability and optimising construction methods.

Efficient Surveying and Mapping:

Ditch the tedious tape measures and time-consuming manual surveys. Galois M2 scans vast areas in a fraction of the time, capturing immense amounts of spatial data with ease. This translates to:

  • Up to 10x faster data collection compared to traditional surveying methods, significantly reducing project timelines.

  • Coverage of large and complex areas in a single scan, eliminating the need for multiple setups and stitching together data from different sources.

  • Automated generation of topographic maps and digital terrain models, providing a clear understanding of the site's existing conditions.


  • Accelerated project timelines: Get your project from planning to execution faster with efficient data collection.

  • Reduced labor costs: Minimise the need for surveyors and field crews, lowering project expenses.

  • Improved decision-making: Make informed decisions about site layout, grading, and excavation based on accurate and up-to-date data.

Enhanced Safety through Remote Data Collection:

Safety is paramount in AEC, and Galois M2 prioritises it. Its remote data collection capabilities eliminate the need for personnel to enter hazardous areas, such as:

  • Roofs with steep inclines or unstable surfaces

  • Confined spaces with limited access or poor air quality

  • Areas with potential exposure to falling debris or electrical hazards


  • Reduced risk of accidents and injuries: Keep your workers safe by eliminating the need for them to enter dangerous areas.

  • Improved worker morale and productivity: Create a safer work environment that boosts employee morale and productivity.

  • Compliance with safety regulations: Demonstrate your commitment to safety by using cutting-edge technology to minimise risks.

Cost-Efficiency and Time Savings:

In the world of AEC, time is money. Galois M2 helps you save both. Its rapid data collection accelerates the pre-construction phase, bringing your project from planning to execution quicker. The captured data's accuracy minimises rework and costly errors, saving you valuable time and resources throughout the project lifecycle. Here are some quantifiable benefits:

  • Up to 50% reduction in project timelines: By streamlining data collection and eliminating rework, Galois M2 can significantly shorten your project schedule.

  • Up to 20% decrease in project costs: Reduced labor costs, minimised rework, and improved efficiency can lead to substantial cost savings on your projects.

  • Increased return on investment (ROI): The long-term benefits of improved accuracy, safety, and efficiency can lead to a higher ROI for your projects.

Additional Benefits:

  • Improved sustainability: Galois M2 can help reduce waste and material usage by providing accurate data for planning and construction, promoting sustainable practices in the AEC industry.

  • Enhanced facility management: As-built data captured by Galois M2 can be used for facility management purposes, such as maintenance planning and space optimisation.

  • Future-proofing your projects: By adopting cutting-edge technology like Galois M2, you are preparing your projects for the future of the AEC industry, which is increasingly data-driven and reliant on advanced technologies.
