rig-camera project to measure stockpiles
« on: January 30, 2021, 12:54:21 PM »
Hi all:

I have in mind a possible project, an idea to measure stockpiles instantly in real time.

The idea came to me when I saw the model capture projects with the multi-camera (rig-budget) systems.

The idea would be to measure an isolated stockpile of terrain or gravel within an industrial building. Fixed cameras would be placed around the object to be shot synchronously and those images would be used to model and calculate a volume.

Does anyone have experience or know of a similar project calculated with metashape?

I am looking for general information on its viability.

Hi nachogi73,

in principle it should work. I have seen a smaller project, where the cargo space of a truck was supervised. You have to make sure that your cameras are absolutely steady of course. I would add some targets to the space to secure it.

Best regards,
