customized tablet for e-Capture “EyesMap” 3D measuring instrument
e-Capture Research and Development S.L., is a technology-based company located in Merida (Badajoz) Spain
E-Capture R&D, a technology-based company, introduces a new 3D accurate measuring instrument, embedded in a tablet. The Spanish enterprise announces that its product will be out for sale at the beginning of 2015, intend to revolutionize the world of measuring with a new generation of portable, easy to use and highly accurate instruments, optimal for most of architecture and civil engineering jobs.
The Tablet “EyesMap” holds two rear Sony cameras of 13 megapixels each, a depth sensor and a GPS system amongst others. Such a system is able to measure coordinates, surfaces and volumes of all types of objects up to a distance of 70 to 80 m. To the same extent EyesMap can scan advanced photogrammetric pictures with up to 4 million dots in almost 2 minutes. These photographic color scans will allow us to create 3D models of all kinds of objects of different sizes: from little insects to big buildings or landscapes.
EyesMap has an outstanding capacity for modeling 3D indoors and outdoors, as well as measuring 3D elements and people or animals moving. The tablet is ideal for measuring works and building inspections. Facades, structures, indoors and 3D Scans can be done by engineers allowing them to dock EyesMap on a topographic tripod in order to position the instrument in a local coordinates system.
EyesMap comes in a tablet with Intel’s 4th generation i7 processor and 16 GB of RAM which gives it an extraordinary performance. The system uses computational vision techniques blended with photogrammetry, precision sensor fine tuning, visual odometer and other advanced images measuring techniques. The EyesMap project is developed under Windows and it will have a space for developers who wish to realize their own applications for any specialty; this instrument is intended to be very useful for architects, archaeologists, civil engineers, topographers, industrial engineers, as well as all other professionals in arts, medicine video games, security, criminology, etc.
“THE CETRIX SOLUTION”
e-Capture was looking for a technical solution for the technology that wanted to introduce to market. The tablet that was required should have a capacity and speed so could handle the operation. A tablet with i7 CPU and 8G RAM with all the internal ports that could match the objectives of the designers. Cetrix was able to provide a Windows Model CZ1197 Tablet with 11.6″ screen on 1366×768 (16:9) eDP Panel, EMR Digitizer, Capacitive Multi-Touch panel, Intel Ivy Bridge i7 processor, DDR3 8G RAM, 128G SSD Storage, Wi-Fi, 3G, on Windows 8.1.
The CZ1197 was put through comprehensive testing in the e-Capture R&D laboratory and found other parameters, such as screen sharpness, viewing angle and brightness to be ideally suited for their design.
