Device Overview

How does the BLK360 function?

The BLK360 emits a laser via a rotating mirror to capture anything that is physically visible in the environment. Millions of individual measurements are collected from each location, aggregated into what is konwn as a point cloud.

In addition, the BLK360 can take HDR images using the three built in cameras. The resulting color panorama can be used to color the point cloud.
