Stop and go vehicle mounted scanning

September 21st, 2012, Published in Articles: PositionIT

An advanced capability version of Gexcel Srl’s popular JRC 3D Reconstructor software is now available with a comprehensive Stop & Go scanner control and acquisition package for most commercially available terrestrial 3D lidar scanners. Perfect for mining and quarry volume rectification, city mapping and any other high density safety critical applications, this new system allows the installation of a laser scanner onto a vehicle to gather multiple scans which are automatically georeferenced and prepared for further automated post processing applications packages such as JRC 3D Reconstructor Mining/Tunnelling, Construction and Heritage/Architectural. The package is available in two variants – the first allows for precise scanner tracking by a total station, resulting in highly accurate pointcloud registration, the second provides a fully automated solution with complete specialised precision GNSS hardware and software for high accuracy location determination using multiple GNSS antennas working in connection with network based or associated base station RTK correction. Both the solutions include the JRC 3D Reconstructor Mining/Tunnelling software. The hardware system is mounted on a vehicle unit platform and the collected data is delivered in many standard formats, fully corrected and georeferenced.
