Whether the application calls for hand-held operation, remote control, or real-time 3D measurement, V-STARS S has the speed, power, versatility and accuracy to handle the job with ease.
In V-STARS S Mode, a single camera is used to record a set of images of a targeted object from multiple points of view. The 3D coordinates of the targeted feature points are then determined in an automatic operation which initially measures the points in the images and then recreates the geometry of the network of images and points that existed at the time of the photography. S-mode is also termed off-line photogrammetry because the computation of 3D object point coordinates takes place only after all the images are recorded and loaded into the PC for processing by V-STARS. The highest possible accuracy and versatility attainable with V-STARS automated 3D coordinate measurement is produced via an S Mode system incorporating the new INCA4 camera. Regarding accuracy, V-STARS has been fully tested and validated in accordance with the VDI/VDE 2634 standard for optical 3D measurement systems.
There are four S-Mode system configurations of V-STARS, the premier system incorporating the INCA4 camera, along with the V-STARS N Platinum, Gold and Silver systems. All are highly portable and comprise a single high-resolution digital camera, a notebook computer, V-STARS software for automatic data processing, and accessories. The 3D measurement accuracy of current V-STARS S systems ranges from 10 µm + 10 µm/m to a maximum of 4.5 µm + 4.5 µm/m, the latter accuracy corresponding to 0.0225mm @ 4m, 0.0009” @ 200” or 1:220,000.
V-STARS S displays the inherent advantages of photogrammetry. System operation is immune to vibration and movement; the camera can be operated hand-held from lifts, cranes and unstable platforms; data recording and processing are very fast; wireless transmission of the recorded images is supported; and the systems fit into two small cases that can travel as carry-on luggage.
Moreover, multiple cameras can be operated simultaneously in V-STARS S mode for the measurement of both dynamic and static objects.
