How Does the SLAM LiDAR Handheld 3D Scanner Work?

SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) is a technology that allows a LiDAR handheld 3D scanner to create a map of the environment and simultaneously determine its own location within the map. This is achieved using a combination of laser range finding, inertial measurement and other sensor data.

The LiDAR hand held scanner sends out laser pulses and measures the time it takes for the pulses to bounce back after hitting an obstacle. By combining this time-of-flight information with the known speed of light, the LiDAR scanner can calculate the distance to the obstacle. By continuously scanning the environment and collecting this range data, the LiDAR scanner can build up a 3D map of the environment.

The portable LiDAR handheld 3D scanner also contains an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that measures its own movement and orientation. By combining this information with the range data, the LiDAR scanner can determine its own location within the map in real-time. This allows the LiDAR scanner to accurately track its own movement and build up a detailed, accurate map of the environment as it moves.

SLAM technology is used in a variety of applications, including autonomous vehicles, robot navigation, and virtual and augmented reality. It is a key enabling technology for self-driving cars, as it allows the car to “see” its environment and understand where it is in relation to the world around it.

What Are the Advantages of Using a LiDAR Handheld 3D Scanner Compared with Traditional Terrestrial Laser Scanners?

There are several advantages to using a SLAM LiDAR handheld 3D scanner comparing to traditional Terrestrial Laser Scanners:

  1. Speed – LiDAR hand held scanners can quickly scan a building and generate a detailed 3D model in a relatively short period of time. This makes them an efficient choice for large-scale projects.
  2. Accuracy – LiDAR scanners are highly accurate, with the ability to capture fine details and produce highly precise 3D models. This is particularly useful for applications such as building restoration and retrofitting, where precise measurements are critical.
  3. Portability – LiDAR hand held scanners are portable and easy to use, making them well-suited for use in a variety of locations and settings. They can be carried by a single operator and do not require the use of tripods or other specialised equipment.
  4. Non-invasive – LiDAR scanners do not require physical contact with the building, making them a non-invasive option for building scanning. This is important for preserving the integrity of historical or valuable structures.
  5. Versatility – LiDAR hand held scanners can be used to scan both the exterior and interior of a building, providing a comprehensive view of the structure. They can also be used to scan objects and surfaces that are difficult to access, such as roofs and facades.

Applications of the Portable LiDAR Handheld 3D Scanner

  • Building construction and design – LiDAR scanners can be used to create precise 3D models of buildings and structures for use in construction, design and engineering. They are particularly useful for retrofitting and restoration projects, as they can quickly and accurately capture the existing conditions of a building.
  • Land surveying – LiDAR scanners can be used to survey large areas of land quickly and accurately, providing detailed topographic maps and elevation data. This is useful for applications such as flood modelling, environmental assessments and infrastructure planning.
  • Cultural heritage and archaeology – LiDAR scanners can be used to create detailed 3D models of cultural heritage sites and artifacts, allowing researchers to study and document them without causing any physical damage.
  • Forensics and accident reconstruction – LiDAR scanners can be used to create precise 3D models of crime scenes and accident sites, allowing investigators to reconstruct events and understand what happened.
  • Industrial inspection – LiDAR scanners can be used to inspect industrial equipment and infrastructure, such as bridges and pipelines, for signs of wear and damage.
  • Virtual and augmented reality – LiDAR scanners can be used to create 3D models of real-world environments for use in virtual and augmented reality applications.
