  • IIIDScan PrimeSense 3D Scanner
    excellent results
    Review by Jeanou
    Compared this handheld 3d scanner to the Artec Eva scanner, and the results are remarkably better ;-) This for a price which is a fraction of the Artec one. It captures objects but also people nicely

... and scan time. Also, if the sensor is made to be stationary or can be subject to some vibration. You would likely add three or four additional 2D scanners to the from and sides, and if you really wanted to be certain, a few weatherproof ultrasonic distance sensors .

... toys. It certainly gets attention when we have students come through, and other visitors. But its a tremendous satisfaction because the manual scanners (Nikon Super Coolscan 9000) run at about 10 minutes per film, and they have to be rotated for a second scan to capture the full area, and 100 ...

If you want professional grade sensors for navigation, GPS and Laser Scanners are the way to go, along with proximity sensors to prevent bumping into localized obstacles that get overlooked or "appear" in your robot's ...

... platforms for home use. In this paper, we describe a compact, planar laser distance sensor (LDS) that has capabilities comparable to current laser scanners: 3 cm accuracy out to 6 m, 10 Hz acquisition, and 1 degree resolution over a full 360 degree scan. The build cost of this device, using COTS ...

A cheap side-scanning laser range-finder would be nice :)

Like a poor cousin to the Sick range.

I was building a simple one using rotating polygon mirrors from old supermarket barcode scanners, but lost focus (no pun intended) a while back.

There are $2000 reverse-engineering laser scanners that can be adapted to mapping and obstacle avoidance.

There are a few homemade ones floating around as well.

As I was watching the DARPA Urban Challenge last week I noticed that every single robot they showed up close had a few of the SICK laser scanners up front. Too bad the cheapest one is around $5000. Otherwise, it would make a great sensor for the people of this forum on our medium-large sized ...
