The 3D Profiling system can provide an high resolution 3d file of the vehicles and measure their height, width, length and volume.
The system is composed by 3 LSR-2001 laser scanners: two lasers are installed in the left and right side of a gantry; the third laser is installed in a side pole (or in a second gantry).
The first two lasers scanners continuously scan both sides and the top of the vehicle while the third one checks the position and movement of the vehicle. The result is a very precise measurement of the vehicle with accurate:
- Class (Motorcycle, car, Van, truck, truck with trailer, articulated lorry, bus, etc.)
The system is also able to provide a classification of the vehicles and give trigger signals when the vehicle begin and end are detected. The triggers can be used by a license plate recognition to store the plate data.
The 3D file generated by the system is a Point cloud file which is a standard for 3d images generated by laser scanners. A 3d viewer provided with the system allows to see, move and rotate the vehicle image for a proper analysis.
The system is based on the LSR-2001 laser scanner which have an angle of view of 96° and a high definition (274 measurements on 96° with an angular resolution of 0.35°).
One of the three LSR2001 used in the profiling system acts as master unit and combines the information of the three lasers to create the precise profile of the vehicle.
The transit data, together with the 3d file, can be retrieved from the master unit through the Ethernet port.
The profiling system can be used in a variety of applications, wherever it is necessary to have a very accurate detection of the transit.
Typical applications are:
- Harbour truck analysis
- Customs vehicle analysis (together with Xray machines)
- Weight in motion systems where a vehicle analysis is required
- Tolling systems for precise classification
The detectors have been designed both on the mechanical and firmware aspect to work outdoor with harsh weather conditions. The firmware has inside some filters for the rain and the snow.
The scanner optics are designed in a different way than other producers do, and are made of two different areas for sending and receiving the laser beam making it resistant to dust, water and other elements.
The configuration of the sensor can be done through easy to use web pages.
