The healthcare sector is always in constant evolution. In order to stay at the forefront from the point of view of diagnosis, there is often the need to introduce more advanced machinery whose placement within the hospital space must be adequately planned. In many cases it is necessary to completely rethink the rooms, taking care not to hinder the hospital routine or to cause inconvenience to the patients.Read more
In this specific case, the client decided to proceed with a rapid survey carried out using the HERON instrument, thanks to which it was possible to detect 3 wings in just 20 minutes, simply by walking along corridors, rooms, and stairs. During data processing, it was possible to extract the point cloud 3D model and compare it with existing 2D maps. The plans of the detected environments were then updated: orthophotos of the 3D model were generated and subsequently imported and vectored in CAD.

« The use of HERON AC-1 for the detection of some hospital internal environments has allowed obtaining a 3D model in a very short time, without interfering with the hospital's operational routine »
