Equip Matterport Camera with LIDAR to give it more capability to work outside
I posted this idea just before the upgrade to the community forum occurred and it seems to have disappeared from the forum so here it is again...
The ability to scan outside with these cameras cannot be overstated.
Trying to scan in the early morning or after sundown "may" work but it's not always possible or convenient to do this and usually requires multiple visits to a site.
Furthermore, if you need to scan across a large open area that does not have any vertical objects along the path the system will generally not work. It simply does not have enough 3D objects to use to work out its new position.
Fortunately there's been a lot of development in the LIDAR world and the price of the technology has dropped significantly:
Combining this technology with the existing camera would be a huge game changer.
I'm quite certain that it would attract a lot of interest from clients in different market segments.
