Orepass-like scan for Boliden Mines, Garpenberg, Sweden

Later prototypes of the TILT Ranger were used for scanning an orepass-like zone in Boliden’s mine in Garpenberg. In the first run, the Ranger was first lowered using its ground navigation mechanism (wheels) without flying, while being activated to maneuver – through flight- any obstacles.

The second run was through a powered flight descent. Both runs had the laser scanner active.

Scans were processed through SLAM to create a 3D map/model of the zone. The models were combined to make for a more accurate representation. Furthermore, a 3D print of the zone followed.
