The project

The digitization of data is of great importance in the industry today. Especially in the field of factory planning it is desirable to create a virtual three-dimensional image of the factory premises. These models not only facilitate the factory planning process itself, but also increase the clarity and enable the use of new technologies, such as VR or AR glasses. In order to take advantage of these benefits, accurate recording and evaluation of the three-dimensional data is necessary.
The focus of this research project is the analysis of different acquisition methods for three-dimensional factory layout data. The focus is on the acquisition methods 360° laser scanner and photogrammetry with aerial photographs taken by drone.
