Underground Mobile Mapping Platform from Japan

Common mobile mapping systems heavily rely on positioning using GNSS. However, concrete, soil and other materials block GNSS signals, thus impeding their use when inspecting pipelines, subways or other underground corridors. Furthermore, such corridors are often narrow, which requires the system to be compact. In Japan a platform equipped with laser scanners and a camera which has been developed for mapping a wide variety of narrow underground spaces. (By Katsuhisa Banjo, ASCO, Japan)   Regular inspection of underground corridors is important to detect deformations and damage. The success of above-ground mobile mapping systems (MMSs) triggered us to design an MMS... (read more)
