An active sensing technology which delivers very high precision, does not require GPS signal and works well in poorly lit environments. Laser scanning effectively delivers accurate and precise point clouds for complex and indoor environments. This makes it an ideal tool for engineering survey applications, architecture, industrial facilities and scan-to-CAD or scan-to-BIM workflows.
The laser scanner emits hundreds of thousands of pulses of light per second which reflect off the environment, enabling the technology to capture slender objects and provide high detail of complex assemblies.
As an active sensing technology, laser scanning is not reliant on ambient lighting conditions or contrasting surfaces, as is the case for Photogrammetry. This allows laser scanning to work at night and in poorly lit environments.
Coordination of control points and targets within the scene allow for geolocation of the resulting outputs and eliminates reliance on GPS signal (unlike drone LiDAR).
Laser Scanning delivers the most accurate and highly detailed reality capture output. This makes it the ideal tool for precise reality capture of structures like bridges, tunnels and industrial process facilities.
THE MOST PRECISE REALITY CAPTURE TOOL FOR DIGITAL ENGINEERING
APPLICATIONS OF LASER SCANNING
- Survey of tunnels, culverts, bridges and inside buildings
- Reality capture of pipework and industrial process facilities
- Reality capture where GPS is unavailable
- Condition assessment of tanks and vessels using deformation analysis
- Scan to CAD and Scan to BIM where high precision and accuracy is required
The primary data output from laser scanning is a 3D point cloud. The point cloud can be optimised to best suit any number of third party geospatial and CAD applications, and most commonly forms the basis of scan to CAD or scan to BIM workflows.
