Capturing Dense Environmental Range Information with a Panning, Scanning Laser Rangefinder

Lars S. Nyland[*] [*]


We use a laser rangefinder with a scanning mirror on a panning platform to acquire range data in a local environment (range < 15m). In this paper, we discuss the hardware components, the software, show several examples of the range data, and discuss problematic issues such as material properties. We conclude with our future plans for improving the data and integrating it into our research program.
