Mitsubishi Electric to Release Compact “MMS-G” Mobile Mapping System

Business Wire

TOKYO–()–Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it will release a compact version of its mobile mapping system (MMS) on December 25. MMS are highly precise measuring systems comprising car-mounted GPS antennas, laser scanners and cameras to gather 3D positioning data on road surfaces and roadside features, generally used as base data to create high-definition 3D maps for autonomous driving and infrastructure inspections. The compact, lightweight and transportable new MMS-G, which is especially suited to mounting on automobiles, railways, carts or ships, is expected to be used for diverse applications in markets including Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania, where high growth is forecast.

The new MMS-G will be showcased at the Mitsubishi Electric stand, No. 12.1E.080 in hall 12.1 during INTERGEO at Messe Frankfurt exhibition complex in Frankfurt, Germany from October 16 to 18, 2018.
