Abstract
Purpose To present a Mobile Scanning System for digitizing three-dimensional (3D) models of real-world terrain.
Design/methodology/approach A combination of sensors (video, laser range, positioning, orientation) is placed on a mobile platform, which
moves past the scene to be digitized. Data fusion from the sensors is performed to construct an accurate 3D model of the target environment.
Findings The developed system can acquire accurate models of real-world environments in real time, at resolutions suitable for a variety of tasks.
Originality/value Treating the individual subsystems of the mobile scanning system independently yields a robust system that can be easily
reconfigured on the fly for a variety of scanning scenarios.
Keywords Image scanners, Digital storage, Topography, Modelling
