Maverick unit

MAVERICK is a portable, powerful, and proven spatial data collection system. Combining high-resolution 360º imaging, high-definition LiDAR, and an integrated position and orientation system, Maverick is capable of efficient and accurate mobile data collection. The vehicle-mounted system is able to operate in a wide range of conditions and can be utilized for projects of any size and scope. System operation is simple and intuitive, requiring only one person to collect and review the data. The included collection software features real-time component feedback and data viewing functionality, allowing for data to be easily collected and quality checked in-field. Maverick also comes packaged with robust viewing and asset management software for putting your data to use.

Working with the City of Madison, Maverick collected LiDAR data on the Capital City Bike Trail to look for flaws in the pavement, encroaching plant life, and other assets.

Mandli used the Maverick when working with WholeTrees and the City of Madison to identify entire trees to be used in the construction of Festival Foods on East Washington in Madison, WI.

Sidewalk data is often difficult and costly to collect. With the Maverick on a Segway, the sidewalks downtown and around the capital building in Madison, WI are easily collected.

The Mandli team traveled to California to make a proposal suggesting the use of the Maverick as a source of original material to create computer graphics for the movie industry.

One of Maverick's early projects was helping the Wings of Dreams Museum transport a large space shuttle fuel tank to their facility. The goal was to make sure that the tank could be safely transported without coming into contact with any objects next to or above the roadway.

Maverick Applications

Maverick Applications

Transportation Safety

Transportation safety prevents accidents, saving lives and avoiding injuries. Maverick can be used to collect data on the following safety risks: guard rails and end treatments; rumble strips; paint striping; sign sheeting condition assessment; intersections; clash detection; public safety and ADA compliance issues; and many more.


Maverick provides a solution for communication and documentation throughout the construction lifecycle from pre-planning, design, site preparation, through to the finished outcome.

Roadway Assets

Maverick’s collected 3D point cloud provides an inventory of assets and their condition allowing for easy asset management, maintenance, and repair. Common roadway assets include clearance measurements, oversized vehicle routing, road surface area, streetlights, power poles, sign inventory, and many more.


Maverick can help manage utility assets such as utility poles, transformers, primary and secondary power sources, distribution lines, transmission lines, vertical clearance, and vegetation encroachment.
