This data was collected using the ScanLook Velodyne HD32 system. Dustin Productions recreated the accident based upon vehicle speed, driving lane, and scan data. Another amazing use of LiDAR scan data.

Here’s a sample of the output generated from a vectorized point cloud. Click here to see a very brief description of how to go from a point cloud to a vector model.
This video shows the raw data captured with all cameras except the forward looking camera. The cameras were mounted level with the truck cab near the back of the truck bed. This is raw data with no corrections, no stitching. The video is clear, quickly adapts to lighting, and is perfect for colorizing the point cloud or aiding in line extraction.

Here’s a very brief clip of ScanLook in operation. There isn’t much to watch. It’s like watching somebody...drive their truck.
The Purdue University Bell Tower scanned in less than one hour by Fagerman Technologies, Inc using the new FARO Focus 3D.
This minor truck accident in Somerville, AL was scanned in less than 20 minutes by Fagerman Technologies using the FARO Focus 3D.
This is a spectral view of the Biodiesel LiDAR data. The difference here is that there is no color (RGB) data present.
This is a Biodiesel plant located in Alabama scanned by Fagerman Technologies. The LiDAR point cloud in this video took approximately 2.5 hours to capture with the FARO Focus 3D. It consisted of approximately 18 setups at 7 min each. The point cloud was then thinned to every 4th point. Of course with 18 setups much more was collected than what can be seen in this video, but for illustration purposes the majority of the point cloud was clipped.
This video demonstrates the ability to use terrestrial based LiDAR to map a potential landing zone in great detail. This helps to ease the pilot’s mind and dramatically increase safety while landing. The capability to have an accurate ‘view’ of the site (including powerlines, guy wires, trees, potholes, contours, and other permanent structures) helps emergency response focus on the task at hand. This is one of many potential landing sites crucially located throughout the city of Decatur (AL).
This video illustrates the use of laser scanning for insurance and realty.
Built in 1837, the courthouse in this video is the oldest in the state of Alabama.
The roof doesn’t appear because from the ground level the line of sight was parallel to the roof line and consequently the roof itself was not imaged. The roof is also metal and highly reflective so most of the laser light would bounce off and keep on going without returning to the scanner.
This video showcases several examples of data we have collected with the Faro Focus system
This data was captured in a single pass at 45mph using ScanLook with only the FARO Focus.
Power Substation in Priceville, AL scanned in 2.5 hours by Fagerman Technologies using the FARO Focus 3D. This was a static scan with color.
This video is of I–65 north of Athens using the FARO FOCUS at over 70mph.
A scan of the AL DOT / Corridor-X Highway south of Jasper, AL using ScanLook with the Velodyne and FARO scanners at highway speed. The video is created using only the FARO data.
A scan of the south bank of the TN River using ScanLook with only the Velodyne scanner from a SeaDoo Sportser.
