Hexagon announced the introduction of the Leica RTC 360 laser scanner equipped with edge computing technology to enable fast and accurate creation of 3D models in the field.
Stockholm/Sweden — The company presented this solution at its annual digital technology conference.
According to the supplier, the RTC 360 combines high-performance laser scanning, edge computing, and mobile app technologies to pre-register captured scans quickly and accurately. With the push of a button, two million points per second of High Dynamic Range (HDR) imagery can be captured to create a full-dome scan in under two minutes.
Laser scanner movements between setup positions are automatically tracked by a Visual Inertial System (VIS) while scans are combined and pre-registered on a mobile device, where they can be viewed and augmented with information tags.
The device addresses construction professionals, plant operators, public safety officials, and other professionals who face complex projects with tight constraints. It provides a way to digitally capture the reality of their sites as well as to process and visualise that data for faster, immediate decision making.
