Ladybug6 is the leading high-resolution camera designed to capture 360-degree spherical images from moving platforms in all-weather conditions. Its industrial grade design and out-of-the-box factory calibration produces 72 Megapixel (MP) images with pixel values that are spatially accurate within +/- 2 mm at 10-meter distance. As the newest member of our field-proven Ladybug series, the Ladybug6 builds on our machine vision heritage with increased image resolution, enhanced on-board processing, and robust IP67-rated connectors. Support for additional Global Navigation Satellite Systems and advanced APIs, combined with hardware inputs, enable precise camera settings and trigger control. Customer applications include panoramic street image production, road surveying, asset inspection, feature extraction for HD map generation among several others.

  • HIGHEST ACCURACY AND IMAGE QUALITY

    Industry leading calibration combined with global shutter CMOS sensors and high-end optics deliver a remarkable survey grade spatial accuracy of +/- 2 mm at 10-meters. Additionally, the Ladybug6 captures outstanding images across a wide range of lighting conditions with excellent color response, low noise, and a high dynamic range.

  • ONBOARD PROCESSING AND FEATURE RICH SDK

    Building on our field proven Ladybug5+, the Ladybug6 captures, compresses, and transmits 8-bit or 12-bit pixel data with on-board image processing for optimized workflows. Our feature rich Ladybug Software Development Kit (SDK) enables image acquisition, spherical and panoramic image production, and fine grain control of pre & post acquisition camera settings via a user-friendly interface.

  • BUILT FOR THE OUTDOORS

    Designed from the ground up to capture images from moving platforms in outdoor environments, the Ladybug6 features an IP65 rating, industrial grade IP67 rated connectors, a wide operating temperature range (-30° C to 50° C), support for additional Global Navigation Satellite Systems, and trigger control by hardware or software with advanced APIs for complete camera control.
