The density of points looks sparse to me in terms of usability.
One feature in the video that looks very interesting is the real time change detection between point clouds which shows matching data s green and clearly highlights in red any differences. Quite how this would perform on a live construction site would be very interesting to see.

Purchasing or even hiring one of these systems for that one feature is unlikely for most.
If only one manufacturer could solve all of our problems so that we didn't have to keep looking at one or two features from each provider. :shock:

It seems to be a quite interesting product but maybe Leica BLK 360 will be present better on the backpack.

Yet another mobile scanner built around the Velodyne Puck module.

Yet another one without any RGB cappabilities.

It also probably costs around 50.000, while the module costs around 7.000 max.

Meh. :roll:

That's interesting. Construction change is always the first thing that comes to mind, but its also the most rigorous in terms of global accuracy. Any kind of drift between surveys would show up as "change" or "errors." Not impossible to adjust for, but never see a solution where that is accounted for or mentioned.

I've heard the general rule of thumb is 4x the hardware cost for stuff like this.

Yep. 7-8000 the module, the DSPs, CPU, mainboard, casing - around 10-12k. Multiply by 4 and you end up at around 45-50k - see above post.

The Velodyne scanners are pretty common in this kind of system as they are light and simple to integrate, but the data will always be noisy. And there's little point specifying a high-grade IMU and GNSS system when the scan data is so noisy, so the relative accuracy of the data will be low too.

We use a "proper" Riegl VUX scanner in our ROBIN system, along with a very high-grade FOG IMU, and we also recommend users post-process the GNSS solution. This all adds time and complexity (and cost ;) ) but the resulting data approaches TLS-quality and accuracy.
