LMI Technologies Featured 3D Body Scanning at Siggraph 2013

Posted By Pauline Tang on August 2, 2013 at 4:36 PM

Last week, our team exhibited at Siggraph 2013. It was nice to interact with everyone at the show and to demonstrate our 3D scanning technologies there. The event brought thousands of computer graphics and interactive technology professionals internationally to the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

Scan Yourself in 3D

We want to thank attendees who came by our booth. We scanned over 500 people at the exhibition using a body scanning station that was powered by KScan3D using four Kinect sensors. The scanning process only takes a few seconds. If you are interested in learning more about the body scanning setup, please visit: Creating A Multi-Sensor Setup For Full Body Scanning.

3D Scanning for the Easter Holiday

Posted By Pauline Tang on March 28, 2013 at 2:30 PM

With Easter coming up, our team continued the tradition of scanning holiday objects into 3D models. Last year we scanned a pumpkin for Halloween and Christmas tree ornaments for the Holidays. For Easter and in celebration of spring, we scanned an art piece that included two sock dolls (a cat and a bunny) placed on a piece of wood.

IEEE Sensors Journal Article: An Automatic Evaluation Procedure for 3-D Scanners in Robotics Application

Posted By Pauline Tang on March 26, 2013 at 11:00 AM

In February, an independent study was published in the IEEE Sensors Journal titled "An Automatic Evaluation Procedure for 3-D Scanners in Robotics Application". The IEEE Sensors Journal is a peer-reviewed, monthly online, bimonthly print journal devoted to sensors and sensing phenomena. A non-profit organization, IEEE is the world's largest professional association for the advancement of technology.

The article states that since several different 3D scanner technologies exist, selecting the optimal 3D scanner for a specific application is not an easy task. The article evaluated different 3D scanners, including the HDI Advance 3D Scanner, for Robotics Applications where high quality data of stationary scenes are required. Various 3D sensors with highly varying properties exist. Using a portable test plate, eight scanners have been tested using standardized procedures. The 3D scanners were compared both qualitatively and quantitatively.
