CleverScan captures visual and dimensional data, and presents the user with three powerful deliverables:
- A flat scan with detailed image data covering every inch of the manhole wall,
- A dense point cloud for 3D visualization of the manhole structure and easy CAD integration, and
- A virtual view inside the manhole, where an operator can pan, tilt and zoom to areas of interest.
CleverScan sits over an open manhole. With the press of a button, the system’s probe descends into the manhole, capturing image data using five HD cameras and building a dimensional profile using an array of four lasers. An onboard rangefinder controls descent and determines when the scan is complete. Scan data is immediately transferred to a laptop running CleverScan software, where it can be viewed, annotated and shared.
CleverScan is MACP compliant, and integrates seamlessly with WinCan inspection reporting and asset management software, as well as Esri ArcGIS mapping software. It travels in virtually any vehicle, and runs a full day on rechargeable batteries.
