LiBorg 2.0: a robot for on-the-fly 3D mapping of environments

Today, the 3D reconstruction of, for example, tunnels or industrial buildings is a time-consuming and expensive process. To simplify this process, IPI – an imec research group at Ghent University – developed the mapping platform LiBorg. This lidar-based platform allows detailed 3D models of various environments to be built on the fly. PhD student Michiel Vlaminck and project manager Hiep Luong explain how LiBorg works and what the benefits are.
