Imagine a future where robots can connect with you not just on a physical level, but on an emotional level too! Well thanks to the researchers at Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute that will all soon be possible.
Beneath the surface of the sea awaits a wonderful and exciting world, filled with a myriad variety of different creatures waiting to be discovered and recorded. The sea has always perplexed people with its many different species of crustaceans, mollusks, and fish. Thanks to robotics, remotely operated underwater vehicles give users a powerful tool for the exploration of our waters and the creatures that inhabit them.
Anyprint’s UN-3DSC-LaH portable handheld scanner utilizes a laser triangulation method for optimal up-close results. Laser triangulation is achieved by beaming a laser at a specific point on an object and is simultaneously recorded via camera. When the laser comes in contact with the object’s surface the camera picks up the different distance that the laser is at and process the information for the 3d model.
