All-in-one mobile 3D color scanning and processing system
Mapping on the move
A whole new approach to reality capture
REAL TIME VIEWING AND CONTROL
Intelligent assistance to get the scan right
Kaarta Reality Layer integrated post-processing enables one-click cleanup and colorization of Contour datasets, running the gamut from point cloud to surface mesh to RGB point cloud to rich photorealistic model. These colorization capabilities make it possible to quickly capture and process just the level of color detail needed for a wide range of applications.
At its most immersive and photorealistic level of detail, Reality Layer automatically connects the dots on a dimensionally-accurate, high-fidelity point cloud to create faithful surface models for the seamless overlay of high resolution color imagery – all rapidly captured and processed with one mobile handheld device. Reality Layer reveals features such as surface textures and colors, locations of electrical, plumbing, HVAC and other features, or even details as fine as the text on signage or labeling.
In addition to Reality Layer, Kaarta continues to provide rich and sophisticated software updates, all free to existing and new customers.
Transition Mapping Mode dramatically eliminates many alignment issues associated with room transitions such as doorways during scanning. Other transitions such as the “opening up” at the end of an aisle in a warehouse, turns in hallways, and stairwells all benefit from this new feature.
Soft Pause prevents the unwanted addition of a moving object, such as a person entering the scanning area, to the model. It also can be used in difficult transitions while scanning such as turning around in a narrow space, opening a door, or retracing through an already mapped space.
Expandable Camera View allows the user to customize the on screen view to suit the application.
Save Color Images enables tagging and labeling of color images and is particularly useful for capturing notes during scanning.
Scan Detail includes an array of information about the scan, cover photos, editable notes fields, viewing, converting and copying file management functions, and access to post-processing functions for Reality Layer.
Improved Startup Initialization intelligently builds a better base for the mapping process, reduces early errors, and provides better gravity alignment.
Pause/Rewind/Resume has improved viewing, reliability and functionality.
Color Imaging improved auto-exposure responds to varying lighting conditions.
Error Reporting during scanning alerts users if there is a mapping sensor failure or processing failure and will automatically pause and rewind to the last good mapping result, allowing the user to try to resume or end the scan and save the already scanned data.
Kaarta Engine, Kaarta’s patent-pending advanced 3D mapping and localization algorithms, is at the heart of Contour, providing highly accurate and robust maps.
Contour is ideal for scanning as-built multi-room interiors, multi-floor plans, buildings, industrial plants and infrastructure and more for both planning and maintenance purposes.
