3D Environment mapping


3D environment maps and datasets

Creation of high spatial resolution 3D surface maps of complex as well as multi-story outdoor environments.

  • Acquisition of high-resolution color 3D point clouds at selected locations that fully represent the environment.
  • Registration of the point clouds into a globally consistent, georeferenced and color 3D point-based map of the environment.
  • Reconstruction of the point-based map into a closed-loop and color surface model suitable for virtual reality (VR) and autonomous robotics applications.
  • Geometric environment and navigability analysis for vehicles and autonomous robots.

The creation of high-resolution and precise 3D environment maps and surface models serves e.g. as a basis for 3D mesh navigation, object surveying or ground truth.
