Previously, assigning a person to the responsibility of using laser scanners for reality capture on a construction site was the only viable option. But as of right now, the Boston Dynamics Spot Mobile Robot can be submitted in its place. To record your scanning mission, simply lead Spot through the project once. Spot can then repeat the task as needed for continuous quality assurance and progress tracking. Spot utilizes FARO Trek 3D Laser Scanning Integration to facilitate autonomous scanning and is compatible with any FARO FocusS Laser Scanner. Precise as-builts offer quality control and status updates to stakeholders during the project.
FARO Trek 3D Laser Scanning Integration
Applications for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction
It can help you produce construction projects of the greatest caliber. In order to reduce the danger of deformations and other issues, precise laser scanning is used throughout the construction process to ensure that the completed structure matches the design intent. Easily inspect free-form shape elements and façade components, as well as do calculations for enormous volumes. The scan data is essential for project management and cross-trade cooperation.
- As-built Modelling and Capture that is Quick.
- Preserving historical sites.
- Asset and facility management with a digital twin.
Pre-incident preparation and forensic analysis
Record every aspect of the environment so that it can be used to create safety systems, investigate crime or accident sites, recreate bullet trails, or determine the origin of a fire.
Use any software tool, including FARO software solutions and third-party applications like Autodesk® ReCapTM, to process the point cloud data from your Focus Laser Scanner that best suits your workflow.
For projects that require five scanning days, a typical scan with the Flash Technology add-on and necessary PanoCam can save up to 2.5 days of scanning and take less than 30 seconds.
Providing competitive service entails extending the product’s lifespan while lowering the overall cost of ownership during its entire useful life.
Thanks to its “Snap-In” functionality, the new Focus is also made to function well with the FARO Freestyle 2 Handheld Scanner. When scanning complicated environments/structures, equipment, or confined areas, reduce the time needed for several scanner locations.
Technology represents a revolution in the scanning of large-volume projects for both public safety and engineering purposes.
