Neptec Technologies Corp. said its OPAL 3D laser scanners have been selected by the Technische Universität Dresden for an airport tarmac safety project in Germany.
The research project, led by Professor Hartmut Fricke, aims to improve the current safety level of airport operations with a real-time 3D surveillance and visualization system for the apron controller. The system combines 3D point cloud data with real-time algorithms to automatically detect aircraft, vehicles and pedestrians for collision avoidance, and to alert the apron controller to the presence of foreign object debris to mitigate damage to aircraft.
Neptec Technologies Corp. develops innovative 3D robot vision products for machine automation and robotics applications in harsh environments. For more information, visit www.neptectechnologies.com.
