Virtualised Reality : Model a City in Hours

May 5th, 2005 | Filed under: Architecture, Internet, Mapping, Urbanism, Virtual Reality | 2 Comments »

Avideh Zakhor and her team at UC Berkley recently modeled downtown Berkeley in 4½ hours (26 minutes of driving plus 4 hours of data processing). By mounting lasers and digital cameras to virtually any vehicle, the truck or plane becomes a highly efficient large scale scanner. Initial usage of the device is aimed at military purposes using unmanned aircrafts in swarms to scan and model enemy territory. Zakhor is also developing a time based scanner resulting in a 4-dimensional model.
