A built in accelerometer, gyro and compass help the Leo with it’s ability to navigate around difficult objects without the need for any kind of ‘sticky targets’ or other navigation aids. This is a massive leap forward in comparison to similar technology that enables the 3d scanning of planar, uniform surfaces. Our engineers have discovered that the big advantage here is that not only can the Leo scan people but it can also scan objects,props and gaming assets. Objects can be scanned from one orientaion and then simply flipped over and scanned from the other direction; the software automatically picks up on areas it has already scanned and immediately registers itself to the new location.
BRINGING TOGETHER LEO AND SPACE SPIDER 3D SCANS
Perhaps the limiting factor of Leo in comparison to a photogrammetry rig is the resolution of the scans; in a recent demonstration our engineers were asked if we can pick up skin pores? The simple answer is no (although there is an upgrade coming for Leo that will improve the resolution), however what is a plausible option is to combine LEO and Spider scans to create composite models that have higher fidelity areas where necessary. The Space Spider gives the user the option to scan local areas at a much higher resolution and then using Artec Studio 14 software the two sets of scan data can be combined to provide a result with exactly the right amount of detail in the required places. The process of the combined data sets is extremely quick and easy; making this a seamless process.
