PRESS RELEASE — HERON® The new real time mapping and tracking wearable system

October 26th, 2017, Brescia (Italy) — Great success at INTERGEO (Hamburg, Germany) for HERON®: the innovative indoor/outdoor real time mobile mapping and tracking wearable system, (composed by hardware and software), developed by Gexcel and European Commission Joint Research Centre.



HERON® is capable to support real time 3D measurements both in industrial plants and underground mining applications. HERON® does not use GNSS or precise IMU sensors, but just a clever and advanced algorithm.

Real time mapping, automatic localization, real time change detection system. This absolute innovative approach to manage the real time mapping and tracking indoor projects is opening new possibilities for industrial/nuclear plants surveying and tracking, underground mining, forest mapping.

PRESS RELEASE — Gexcel at the FARO 3D USER CONFERENCE ASIA PACIFIC 2016

July 6th, 2016, Beijing (China) — On Friday 8th, during the FARO 3D User Conference (PRD JW Marriott Hotel Beijing),  Gexcel will present to the Asian market the innovative and outstanding software solutions to automatic align, organize and combine in a same project the FARO Focus3D static scans and the FARO Freestyle3D high resolution scans.

Thanks to the collaboration with Guangzhou Scan Technology Ltd., the laser scanning 3D documentation surveying activities at the Foshan Chin Woo Assembly Hall (Chungshan Park, Foshan, China) will be presented. JRC 3D Reconstructor® has been successfully used for this important survey finalized to a restoration project. This example is a clear demonstration that using a powerful software like JRC 3D Reconstructor®, the data processing and the output extraction workflows give you excellent results in an easy and fast way.

Mr. Yangting, from Guangzhou Scan Technology Ltd., said:

«In 2016, Guangzhou Scan Technology Ltd. was commissioned by Chin Woo Athletic Association to conduct a survey of the assembly hall for restoration purpose. With the help of Faro Focus3D X130 scanner and Gexcel JRC 3D Reconstructor® software, a series of high-resolution point cloud images were generated and an accurate set of survey drawings were delivered later on as reference for restoration design in the coming future».



«Foshan Chin Woo Assembly Hall, located in Chungshan Park, Foshan, was the largest and most well preserved Chin Woo hall in China. Built in 1935 (24th year of the Republic), the exterior of the building had the elements of ancient Chinese architecture: a double-eaves hip-and-gable roof with green glazed roofing tiles. While looked from the outside, it was a traditional seven-bay-wide corridor building, a modern steel truss design was adopted to create a long-span, column-free space inside the stadium. In 1998, Chin Woo Assembly Hall has been officially approved by Foshan government as one of the municipal culture relics. It has been forced shut down in 2010, however, due to poor condition resulting from lack of proper maintenance».

PRESS RELEASE — Gexcel at SPAR Japan 2016

June 1st, 2016, Tokyo (Japan) — On Wednesday 1st, prof. Yoshiki Hori, Professor of History of Architecture and City Planning in Europe, from the Department of Architecture and Urban Design of Faculty of Human-Environment Studies of the Kyushu University (Japan), will present at SPAR Japan 2016 his research activities in 3D laser scanning surveying of international archeological sites.

At the same conference Mr. Muramatsu Kiyoshishin, Gexcel Japan technical manager, will chair a workshop focused on the use of the main Gexcel software for laser scanning, JRC 3D Reconstructor®.


The workshop will also introduce
- the new BIM&Industrial Plant Suite® (www.gexcel.it/en/software/suite)
- the new compatibility between DotProduct® data and JRC 3D Reconstructor® (www.gexcel.it/en/dot-product)


«JRC 3D Reconstructor® has been specifically designed to align or register many datasets and large volumes of point cloud data automatically. I can say that the point clouds processing engine of JRC 3D Reconstructor® can be used to improve the performance of the whole laser scanning data processing, providing a familiar software environment and meeting the needs of laser scanning data elaboration»

These are the considerations about JRC 3D Reconstructor® given to Gexcel Japan by Prof. Yoshiki Hori who has a long experience on the use of laser scanning for the documentation of ancient archeological sites around the world and, in particular, in Roman Archeological sites as Pompei and Ostia Antica in Italy.


Prof. Hori underlines that
«Many dense and extensive datasets of point clouds, resulting in many gigabyte of data, usually require large amount of RAM and a high performance graphics cards, but the crucial stage remain the process known as cloud alignment or registration, which is done using targets, such as spheres or checker boards. As that process is inevitable in terrestrial laser scanning, we have to spend much time and effort to align or register datasets increasing their size during the post-survey process».
Thanks to JRC 3D Reconstructor® now the data processing is faster than ever, in fact
«In my laboratory a few under or graduate students used to captured more than 30 datasets per day and the pre-registration process could not be completed until the next morning. Actually they do not work more so hard with the software but just running the pre-registration command. JRC 3D Reconstructor® has become essential for the process of integration and management of many point clouds in different formats produced by Leica, Faro, Teledyne-Optech, etc.»



==========

At SPAR Japan, Gexcel will also announce that, starting from 2016, has become the official representative of the SITECO RoadScanner  MOBILE MAPPING SYSTEM  in Asia Pacific. Configurable with various sensors and Inertial Navigation Systems, RoadScanner4 and RoadScanner Compact represent the right flexible choice for 3D mobile laser scanner surveying.
