Three-dimensional models of real world terrain have
application in a variety of tasks, but digitizing a large
environment poses constraints on the design of a 3D
scanning system. We have developed a Mobile
Scanning System that works within these constraints to
quickly digitize large-scale real world environments. We
utilize a mobile platform to move our sensors past the
scene to be digitized fusing the data from cm-level
accuracy laser range scanners, positioning and
orientation instruments, and high-resolution video
cameras to provide the mobility and speed required to
quickly and accurately model the target scene.
