Title (EN) REMOTE SCANNING AND DETECTION APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE BALAYAGE ET DE DÉTECTION À DISTANCE
Abstract:
(EN) A surface scanning apparatus attached to a movable platform such as a highway vehicle, mobile equipment or a drone that passes over a substrate, at least some of the features of which are to be sensed and characterized. The apparatus includes a variously adaptable, complete, and ready to operate packaged kit including configured sensor suites with components selected from the group consisting of a visual scanning sensor; an infra-red scanning sensor; a ground-penetrating radar unit; a laser range finder for sensing elevation of the apparatus above the substrate; a distance sensor for measuring displacement of the apparatus from a point of origin; a position sensing unit for determining a position of the apparatus; a simultaneous trigger mechanism; a structural boom assembly attached to the platform; and a processor for digitally processing measurements and signals collected by one or more of the group of components.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de balayage de surface fixé à une plate-forme mobile telle qu'un véhicule routier, un équipement mobile ou un drone qui passe au-dessus d'un substrat, dont au moins une partie des caractéristiques doivent être détectées et caractérisées. L'appareil comprend un kit conditionné diversement adaptable, complet et prêt à fonctionner incluant des séries de capteurs, configuré avec des composants choisis dans le groupe incluant : un capteur de balayage visuel ; un capteur de balayage à infrarouges ; une unité radar pénétrant le sol ; un télémètre à laser servant à détecter l'élévation de l'appareil au-dessus du substrat ; un capteur de distance destiné à mesurer le déplacement de l'appareil à partir d'un point d'origine ; une unité de détection de position destinée à déterminer une position de l'appareil ; un mécanisme de déclenchement simultané ; un ensemble de bras structuraux fixés à la plate-forme ; et un processeur destiné à traiter numériquement les mesures et les signaux collectés par un ou plusieurs éléments du groupe de composants.
