CleverScan performs a comprehensive, fully automated assessment of manhole condition in just two to three minutes. It captures visual and dimensional data, and presents the user with three powerful deliverables: a flat scan with detailed image data covering every inch of the manhole wall; a dense point cloud for 3-D visualization of the manhole structure and easy CAD integration; and a virtual view inside the manhole, where an operator can pan, tilt and zoom to areas of interest. With the press of a button, the system’s probe descends into the manhole, capturing image data using five HD cameras and building a dimensional profile using an array of four lasers. An onboard rangefinder controls descent and determines when the scan is complete. Scan data is immediately transferred to a laptop running CleverScan software, where it can be viewed, annotated and shared.  866/936-8476;
