Faraz Ravi New Chairman of ASTM Committee on 3D Imaging Systems29/03/2012
|Faraz Ravi, Bentley’s director of product management for point clouds, has been appointed chairman of the ASTM International Committee E57 on 3D Imaging Systems.|
Formed in 2006, Committee E57 develops standards for 3D imaging systems, including optical range cameras and laser scanners that capture point cloud data. Ravi co-founded Pointools Ltd, the hardware-neutral provider of point cloud software that Bentley acquired in 2011 to help it establish point clouds as a fundamental data type across all of its platforms, applications, and information management services.
Commenting on his new appointment as chairman of the ASTM International Committee E57, Ravi said that in working towards robust standards and promoting data interoperability, Committee E57 represents the interests of users exploiting rapidly advancing 3D imaging technologies for infrastructure workflows.
Ravi was a director at IGLOO Software in London, UK, from 2001 to 2003. He co-founded Pointools Ltd in 2003 and served as its CEO until the company was acquired by Bentley. Ravi graduated from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, with a Bachelor of Architecture and a Diploma of Architecture.
