KOREC and NCTech launch KlearView360°

KOREC and NCTech today announced the launch of KlearView360°, a streamlined, hosted system designed for the identification of assets, defects or changes within images collected by vehicle or backpack. A cost-effective solution, KlearView360° makes vehicle-mounted asset inspection accessible to local authorities and many others.

The system is a joint partnership between the two companies, combining NCTech’s iSTAR Pulsar+ high resolution camera for capturing 360° imagery at carriageway speeds with KOREC’s K-Portal cloud-based hosting solution for live progress monitoring of a project and the assignment of work orders.

KlearView360° also enables work management instructions to be communicated to mobile workers for issue resolution via KOREC’s K-Mobile data capture software, designed to run on Android, iOS or Windows devices. Accessible through a standard web browser, the system minimises impact on existing IT infrastructure and is simple to implement.

A 360° solution for 360° imagery

The KlearView360° workflow has been designed with simplicity in mind, eliminating the need for costly additional hardware and software or extensive training:

  • Drive chosen route
  • Identify asset defect or issue from imagery
  • Assign location with image of asset defect to mobile worker
  • Mobile worker navigates to asset
  • Mobile worker undertakes designated task
  • Mobile worker sends photo verification of work done
  • Database automatically updated

KlearView360° also offers a cost-effective and simple way to add the iSTAR Pulsar’s high resolution 360° imagery to existing GIS datasets hosted within ArcGIS or QGS via K-Portal’s dynamic link, and provides rapid video playback to review driven routes.

Historically these types of solutions have been very expensive, but the KlearView360° integration with the iSTAR Pulsar+ means that we can put vehicle mounted inspection into the hands of local authorities, highways engineers and consultants, utilities and many more in an affordable and effective way.”

Richard Gauchwin, KOREC Business Area Manager – Mapping & GIS

We’re excited to be working together with KOREC on KlearView360° – combining our unique capability to deliver high resolution 360° image capture on the move at an affordable price point with the efficiency and simplicity of K-Portal. This partnership embodies exactly the kind of relationship that we are keen to form with software and hardware companies throughout the GIS and AEC sector.
