3D laser scanning

The essence of laser scanning technology is to determine the spatial coordinates of object points. That is, the device, using a phase or pulsed non-reflective range finder, calculates the distances to all points of the object and measures vertical and horizontal angles. In this case, a three-dimensional image (with XYZ coordinates) is formed in the form of a cloud of points (scan, bitmap). The principle of operation is similar to the operation of an electronic total station, but unlike it, the shooting process takes place thousands and even millions of times faster! And this makes terrestrial laser scanning the most efficient and high-performance means of obtaining accurate and complete information about any object!

The laser scanner is controlled from a laptop computer or from the control panel built into the scanner.

The shooting process itself is quite simple and has the following sequence:
1) zones of mutual overlapping of scans are determined, targets are set;
2) the laser scanner is mounted on a tripod in certain areas;
3) the device is given the density of the point cloud (resolution) and the survey area;
4) the process of laser scanning of objects starts.

Road target layout

Even at the stage of field work, it is necessary to preliminarily determine the zones of mutual overlap of scans (so that all the details of the object being photographed can be seen). To do this, prior to the start of shooting, special targets . Further, according to the coordinates of these targets, the point clouds are combined into a single 3D model . It is possible to combine point clouds without targets.

To obtain a complete 3D image of terrain, several shooting sessions (from different positions) are required. This makes it possible to shoot the surface from different points and fix any, even the smallest elements! The resulting point clouds are combined with each other into a single space in the software module. All data at the same time have such characteristics as coordinates, intensity of the reflected signal and the real color of the point.

As a result of the collected data, we obtain a 3D model , with a high degree of detail, flat drawings and sections, profiles and sections, plans, areas and volumes of surfaces that maintain full geometric correspondence of the shapes and sizes of a real object. Among other things, there is the possibility of exchanging graphic data, which makes it easy to integrate the laser scanning technology into the scheme of the software already in use.

Overview of Ground Laser Scanners

Today, many companies are developing 3D laser scanners for various purposes. But all modern terrestrial laser scanners have a number of common characteristics:
1. Accuracy of measuring distance, horizontal and vertical angles;
2. maximum scanning resolution;
3. scanning speed;
4. range of the laser scanner;
5. divergence of the laser beam;
6. field of view of the scanner;
7. used means of obtaining information about the real color;
8. safety class of the laser used;
9. portability and interface features.

One of the world's leading manufacturers of terrestrial laser scanners is Z+F (Zoller + Fröhlich) . Devices brand Z + F are made in Germany, which does not raise doubts about the quality and accuracy of the device! Today, one of the most popular devices of this brand is laser scanner IMAGER5010 . Unlike its predecessors, the scanner has unsurpassed scanning speed, improved accuracy, huge field of view, extended temperature range, color touch screen, light weight and compactness. In addition, the laser scanner has a safe beam, not only for industrial equipment, but also for human eyes! All these differences put the scanner an order of magnitude higher than its peers.

High accuracy and scanning speed (more than 1 million points per second) allows you to make measurements on the object in a very short time and at the same time achieved accuracy better than 1mm - this is especially true in cases where it is necessary to avoid the accumulation of errors when registering data obtained from a large number of scanner stops.

Wide field of view (3600 horizontal and 3200 vertical) leaves only a small area under the scanner out of the scanner's field of view. In addition, the scanner is adapted to work in different conditions , from temperatures from -100 to very dusty!

Equally important is the compactness of the device and its complete autonomy from a computer or any devices, and the data is stored on the drive built into the scanner. The color touch screen makes it easy to set scan modes, view acquired data, and perform simple measurements on acquired point clouds.

After all the work has been done, data has been received from different points, the program LFM Register will help to register them in a single cloud, and LFM Modeller will help to process and convert them into three-dimensional models or flat drawings. In addition, the received data can be transferred to any other software packages, such as AutoCAD, Smart Plant 3D, PDMS and others, to work in them for further design.

An equally popular laser scanner is scanner GLS-1500 manufactured by Topcon (Japan). Japanese instruments have always had the best performance under equal conditions. So, for example, laser scanner GLS-1500 with a lower scanning speed (up to 30,000 points per second), has a greater shooting range (up to 330 meters). This gives the scanner an advantage when shooting in open areas of considerable size. In addition, this does not deprive the scanner of the ability to capture urban and industrial areas, building facades and architectural objects.

Equally important is that the scanner is equipped with class 1 safety laser and high millimeter accuracy. Complete autonomy and built-in control panel with data accumulation on a regular SD card, as well as the built-in WiFi module , make the device not only reliable, but also convenient. So, the scanner can be controlled remotely, which is important when shooting in adverse conditions. In addition, using the built-in camera, you can save photos of the subject itself.

Software Topcon ScanMaster allows you to register the received data, combine them into a single point cloud, prepare data for drawings, perform measurement work, create surface models, profiles, cross sections.

Where is terrestrial laser scanning used?

Terrestrial laser scanning applications are numerous. Laser scanning possible to apply:
- in the construction and operation of engineering structures;
- in the mining industry;
- in the oil and gas industry;
- in architecture;

In any field, laser scanning has advantages such as:
- prompt receipt of initial data
- prompt preparation of high-quality and visual design documentation (office processing)
- high-precision and detailed shooting
- increased work efficiency and labor costs
- safe work
- carrying out work without interrupting (stopping) from the process of the removed object
- work in conditions of increased dust, vibration, poor lighting
and much more!

Based on the foregoing and the experience of our company's specialists when using this technology, we can conclude that terrestrial laser scanning technology proved to be not only highly effective, but in many cases as indispensable, allowing in a short time to quickly capture various objects without loss of accuracy and completeness of the collected data. It can be applied in almost any field due to absolute objectivity and the absence of the influence of the human factor.

It is hard to imagine how much time it would take us to shoot communications with an electronic reflectorless total station, for example, in a slurry pump shop with dimensions of 60 × 30 × 20 meters. Months, maybe a year? With the Laser Scanner , all "field" work can be completed in a few working days.

Which laser scanner should I choose?

The key to success in jobs that require laser scanning technology is the right tool.
