POWERED BY KAARTA ENGINE

Real-time detailed digital 3D model scanning and generation


Kaarta Stencil™ is a stand-alone, light weight, hand-held, and low cost system unleashing the integrated power of 3D mapping and real-time position estimation not possible with fixed-base scanning systems. Kaarta Engine, Kaarta’s patent-pending advanced 3D mapping and localization algorithms, is at the heart of Stencil, providing highly accurate and robust maps. Stencil’s ease of use, breadth of applications, and streamlined workflow make it the perfect choice for infrastructure inspectors, engineers, security personnel, architects, farmers, or anyone who needs an easy way to document the 3D world quickly and dependably.

CONFIGURATION

Stencil base configuration is an extruded-aluminum enclosure with machined plates for lidar mounting and adapters as well as mounting points for attachment to vehicles, tripods and more.

Stencil can accept several lidar models including Velodyne VLP-16 and Velodyne HDL-32E. Stencil uses only an Allen wrench for lidar attachment.

Feature Tracker, a high frame-rate imaging device, is recommended for operation in more open, unstructured environments.
