Capturing one of the worlds longest tunnels

Sensor merging for digital reality

With the combination of imaging and scanning data, all visual information is brought to reality. The Leica Pegasus:Two and reality capture solutions marry traditional surveying technology, such as positioning systems, laser scanning and radar imagining, into one convenient and easy-to-use platform. A complete and fluid workflow follows reality capture of calibration, post-processing, object extraction and GIS storage.

Enabling the engineers to work with the most accurate and current representation available, the open tracks were presented in 2D and 3D display for maximum manipulation capability. In the rail industry, working with highly realistic models translates into safer design, faster production and reduced costs.

“Being able to provide such a detailed dataset to the stakeholders enabled all interested parties to conduct their work swiftly and successfully,” said Martin Baumeler, Grunder’s managing director. “The Leica Pegasus:Two increases our business and ensures we provide quality deliverables to our customers.”
