Abstract

Robots used on-site in construction need to perceive the surrounding environment to operate autonomously. This is challenging as the construction environment is often less than ideal due to changing lighting conditions, turbid air, and the need to detect fine details. In this work we evaluate a custom made projected light 3D sensor system for suitability and practicality in enabling autonomous robotics for construction. A series of tests are performed to evaluate the sensor based on ability to capture environmental details, operate robustly in challenging lighting conditions, and make accurate geometric measurements. Analysis shows that high fidelity measurements with accuracy in the order of millimeters can be obtained, making the technology a promising solution for robots operating in construction environments.
