Scope of Global Mobile Mapping Market Report-

Mobile Mapping is the method of collecting geospatial data from mobile vehicles such as cars, drones, boats, trains or aeroplanes. Vehicles could be equipped with a range of sensors: Positioning (GNSS, GPS), Cameras, LiDAR, Radar and more remote sensing systems. Such systems are composed of an integrated collection of time synchronised navigation sensors and imaging sensors mounted on a mobile platform. The major output from such systems includes GIS data, digital maps, and georeferenced images and video. Mobile mapping technology is used to survey major road and rail projects, for mapping urban environments, understanding underwater and underground structures, and to improve safety in power infrastructure and plants around the world. Mobile Mapping is much faster than traditional surveying methods. In fact, according to the Association for Project Management (APM), it could be up to 40 times faster than traditional static scanning tools (e.g. tripods).  Mobile mapping systems (MMS) were developed when GPS became available (Novak, 1993), and the basic concept is to use sensors installed on a moving vehicle, such as trucks, cars, rail cars, to acquire geospatial data in a highly effective way over transportation corridors at normal travel speed.

The pandemic has positively affected the mobile mapping market. Mobile mapping has gradually gained market power during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic for mapping the travel history and location of infected individuals. Besides, governments are extensively adopting mobile mapping tools to map demographic data and compare this data with the spread of the disease across a region. At the same time, the pandemic had a significant impact on hardware manufacturers including smartphones due to disruptions in the supply chain and government-imposed restrictions.

Global Mobile Mapping Market Dynamics-

Emergence of automated driving technology is driving the growth of Mobile Mapping. The expansion of autonomous connected vehicle infrastructure is due to rising consumer expectations and various technological advancements. In poor visibility and conditions, the mobile mapping system helps plan the vehicle and provides a safety net of sensors to make autonomous driving safer. Automation can greatly improve the comfort of the driver by considering the difficulties of driving safely. Autonomous can greatly improve the comfort of the driver by considering the difficulties of driving. Autonomous driving needs mobile mapping solutions of the highest order. Therefore, mobile mapping technology plays a vital role in the development of autonomous driving technology as it provides the digital world to meet the navigation safety requirements of future autonomous vehicle applications. Hence, the emergence of autonomous driving technology is providing ample growth opportunities for market growth. Autonomous cars observed a rise in sales, as in 2020, around 11.2 million cars were sold with Level 2 features, which was an increase of 78% over 2019.
