We are excited about building a successful range acquisition system, and the success of our system has been shown by the desire of others to use the data in their projects. As a custom system, we are able to quickly adapt our data collection methods to that required by different projects, an advantage not found in commercial systems. We feel in our own work and in the work of others that there is a large future for dense range data.

The ability to match color data with range data has also been successful, although fraught with significant processing requirements. The combined data enables realistic walk-throughs of real environments that would be far too complex (or impossible) to model.
