3D Scanning of the Pillars of a Wharf

 

Our Slam Scanner is now equipped with RTK module which is a significant factor in controlling drift when doing corridor mapping without the need to make loops in the capture path. The RTK module eliminates the need for GCPs for horizontal orientation.
Recently we completed a 3D scan of the underside pillars of a Wharf; 3D Scanning operation was done from the waterside on a JetSki while RTK module was connected to our Ntrip Base network via the in-built GSM modem. The trajectory of the scanner has been captured within 1-2 cm accuracy and there was no drift as expected.

 

We use state-of-the-art Technologies, fitting the scope of the job to save time and increase efficiency

Slam Mobile Scanner

 

A SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) handheld scanner with RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) positioning combines the capabilities of SLAM technology with highly accurate real-time positioning. This combination offers several benefits in various applications:

High Precision Mapping: RTK positioning provides centimeter-level accuracy in real-time. When combined with SLAM, it enables the creation of extremely precise 3D maps of environments. This is especially useful in applications like construction, archaeology, and forestry, where accurate mapping is critical.

  • Efficient Surveying: Surveyors and land professionals can use SLAM handheld scanners with RTK to significantly reduce surveying time and effort. The high accuracy of RTK ensures that survey data is reliable, while SLAM technology helps automate the mapping process, making it more efficient.
  • Indoor and GPS-Denied Environments: Traditional GPS systems may not work well indoors or in environments with limited GPS signal availability (e.g., dense urban areas or forests). SLAM with RTK allows for precise mapping and positioning in such GPS-denied scenarios, making it valuable for indoor navigation, construction within buildings, or forest management.
  • Improved Augmented Reality: When used in augmented reality (AR) applications, the combination of SLAM and RTK allows for more accurate and stable AR overlays. This can enhance user experiences in gaming, navigation, or industrial training scenarios.
  • Autonomous Robotics: SLAM with RTK is crucial for autonomous robots, drones, and vehicles operating in dynamic, unstructured environments. The high precision of RTK positioning combined with SLAM's mapping capabilities enables safe and efficient navigation, making these technologies suitable for agriculture, search and rescue, and autonomous vehicles.
  • Reduced Drift and Error: RTK helps mitigate drift and cumulative error in the SLAM system. Over time, SLAM systems can accumulate errors in position estimation, especially in large environments. RTK positioning provides corrections that keep the SLAM map aligned with the real-world environment.
  • Emergency Response and Disaster Management: SLAM handheld scanners with RTK positioning can be invaluable in emergency response and disaster management. They can quickly create accurate maps of disaster-stricken areas, aiding rescue teams in their efforts to locate victims and plan rescue operations.
  • Infrastructure Inspection: Infrastructure inspection, such as power lines, pipelines, and bridges, can benefit from the high accuracy of RTK positioning when combined with SLAM. It allows for precise monitoring, maintenance planning, and anomaly detection.
  • Reduced Manual Intervention: With RTK-enhanced SLAM, there is less reliance on manual measurements and positioning, reducing the risk of human error and speeding up data collection and analysis processes.
  • Cost Savings: While RTK-equipped devices and SLAM technology can be an investment, the increased efficiency, accuracy, and reduced need for manual labor can lead to significant cost savings in various industries over the long term.

Overall, the combination of SLAM handheld scanners with RTK positioning offers enhanced accuracy and efficiency across a wide range of applications, making it a valuable tool for professionals in fields such as surveying, construction, robotics, and emergency response.
