COLORADO SPRINGS - Sanborn Map Company announced the release of its robotic Sanborn Platform for Indoor Mapping (SPIN), which will be demonstrated this week at the annual SPAR International 3D Measurement and Imaging Conference (April 15-17) in Colorado Springs.

Sanborn said SPIN is a compact, easy-to-use, self-navigating system that generates preregistered spatial data in near real-time.

The company said SPIN can generate 2D floor plans, create 3D models of indoor environments and catalog inventory and/or assets.

Sanborn said SPIN delivers better than 3cm accuracy with a resolution as fine as 1cm as it records more than 200,000 measurements per second.

SPIN has a 270-degree field of view and a LIDAR-based system that generates 3D detail while maintaining a Class 1 Eye Safety Rating.

"Indoor environments pose unique challenges for laser scanning with traditional static systems," said Sharad Oberoi, Sanborn's technical development manager and head of the R&D team that designed and built SPIN.

"SPIN navigates autonomously in close-quarter environments and yields highly accurate results 20 times faster than a static system."
