3D data acquisition

For the acquisition of 3D data we use laser scanners and tailor-made lighting and camera systems.

3D data interpretation

For an automated segmentation of point clouds we use »Deep Learning Frameworks«, which work on the basis of artificial neural networks.

Systems technology and integration

We develop tailor-made measuring systems for use in very harsh environments. The scope of services also includes installation and maintenance of the devices.

Expertise »Object and Shape Detection«

Your partner in 3D measurement

Fraunhofer IPM covers the entire process chain of optical 3D object detection. From

  • Tailor-made high-end measuring systems for 3D data acquisition to
  • Installation and maintenance of the systems and
  • Software for the automated interpretation of 3D measurement data.

Our laser scanners, lighting and camera systems measure the 3D geometry of objects and large structures three-dimensionally with high precision. The majority of our systems are based on the principle of time-of-flight measurement. Combined with a scanning unit, they capture three-dimensional object geometries quickly and precisely from the centimetre to the 100-metre range. The eye-safe systems are robustly designed for use on mobile platforms such as measuring trains, vehicles for road surface measurement or UAV.

Our 3D measurement systems include software for data interpretation. For the efficient evaluation of 3D data, we increasingly rely on adaptive algorithms that enable automated interpretation of measurement data.
