Robust laser scanning: measurement of infrastructure and object detection
Three-dimensional measurement of large areas is becoming more and more important. 3D data of rails, roads, bridges or buildings is a valuable basis for servicing and maintenance. It is now also possible to monitor large swaths of land using mobile laser scanners. For instance, this allows geohazards to be detected at an early stage or the state of vegetation over large areas to be mapped. Fraunhofer IPM develops mobile laser scanners for use on rail tracks, on roads, in the air, under water or on hand-held systems.
