Hexagon launches Leica RT360 3D laser scanner

The RTC360 3D laser scanner combines high-performance laser scanning, edge computing, and mobile app technologies to pre-register captured scans.

Hexagon (Stockholm, Sweden) announced June 13 the launch of the Leica RTC360, a laser scanner equipped with edge computing technology to enable fast and accurate creation of 3D models in the field. 

The RTC360 combines high-performance laser scanning, edge computing, and mobile app technologies to pre-register captured scans. According to Hexagon, two million points per second of High Dynamic Range (HDR) imagery can be captured to create a full-dome scan in under two minutes using the scanner. Reportedly,  laser scanner movements between setup positions are automatically tracked by a Visual Inertial System (VIS) while scans are combined and pre-registered on a mobile device, where they can be viewed and augmented with information tags.

“For construction professionals, plant operators, public safety officials, and other professionals who face complex projects with tight constraints, [the Leica RTC360] provides a better way to digitally capture the reality of their sites – and process and visualize that data for faster, immediate decision making,” says Ola Rollén, Hexagon President and CEO.
