ikeGPS is changing the way the world is measured, utilizing its smart laser measurement solutions to capture, record and export measurement data. Numerous vertical industries and field data collection-based professionals use ikeGPS products to modernize the way measurements are taken and shared. ikeGPS’ product portfolio includes IKE 3 and Spike.
Spike is a smart laser measurement solution for all kinds of industries and professional use. The Spike device, Spike mobile app, Spike Cloud and your smartphone or tablet work together to change the way measurements are taken and shared. Spike allows you to measure an object simply by taking a photo with your smartphone or tablet. From that photo you can capture real-time measurements, including height, width, area, length and target location.
Spike gives you the flexibility to measure when and how you want, whether in the field or at the office, using the Spike mobile app or cloud-based tools. Measurements and location are saved with the picture and can be easily shared as a JPG, PDF, Spike File (XML) and KMZ.
Spike works with both Apple iOS and Google Android devices, and attaches to a smartphone with a quick-release clamp or to a tablet case with high-strength bonding tape. The Spike device pairs with your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. Spike’s laser rangefinder works together with your smartphone or tablet’s camera, GPS, compass, and Internet connection.
IKE 3 is a customizable and verifiable pole data collection solution used by electric utility companies, fiber optic telecommunication companies and engineering service providers to:
•Dramatically improve field and engineering productivity
• Reduce pole inspection and joint-use audit costs
• Streamline permit submissions and make-ready processes
This unique all-in-one device combines a laser rangefinder, digital camera and compass along with GPS and a mobile computer. The melding of technology elements eliminates the need for multiple equipment in the field. It has also successfully been adopted in a number of other industries, including public safety, civil engineering, transportation, federal and city government, defense and intelligence agencies.
