Many advanced robots use a 3D depth camera and other sensors to capture and map their environments. REscan takes a different approach. It is a head mounted imaging laser scanner that can be used to map large indoor and outdoor environments. It can capture everything as you walk through spaces, regardless of whether people are around. Its smart software can exclude people from the scans.
The viewer app is available for iOS and Android devices. It lets you view 3D scans of all the spaces you have captured. REscan also has a mobile phone based semantic labelling and annotation tool. The data this tool captures can be used for smarter AI and robots.[HT] [Credit: reddot]
