PointCloud VR

Postby ivalencia » Wed Jan 11, 2017 4:35 am

Hello! I didn't find anywhere else I could talk about this.

Does anyone know any VR technology that works flawless with PointClouds?

Let's say instead of adding a Point Cloud to Navisworks (for example) and rotate/fly/etc it.. put some VR glasses on my clients and they can navigate Point Cloud like they are there. I saw this ( http://www.faro.com/faro-3d-app-center/ ... oud-viewer ).

Any ideas?

Leica Geosystems has a beta version of JetStream VR which is pretty awesome!

We've been showing this since Intergeo last year, and at various user conferences. In addition to being able to fly-around the pointcloud we have the ability to pull through Geo-tags, similar to those used in TruView/Cyclone Model and these 'pop' into view when you're in close proximity to the objects in question. This could include images, documents, external links or even movie files or links to other hosted clouds. Feedback from everyone who has used it has been very positive.

We also trialled a VR-enabled version of TruView Global which works on Samsung Gear (one of our colleagues has also created a version compatible with iOS (I will ask him if I can share this)). There is no '3D' aspect to this solution, as it's TruView is essentially 2.5D. But there is the ability to measure and mark-up using a remote device (though I think iOS struggles with this aspect until they 'officially' support VR).

The key in the future will be how we link the TruView VR and the JetStream VR into one cohesive experience which is usable, fun and engaging. Think about the collaborate aspect also. Much like the Facebook demonstration of avatars sharing a single unified space, how cool would this be with pointclouds? I can't wait!!

IValencia,

We have a VR plugin available today for our Arena4D Data Studio desktop application which allows you to view all types of data (including massive point clouds) on the Oculus Rift.

You can add panoramic images, 3d models, measurements, annotations, maps, lighting and all kinds of things to the scene as well as just point cloud data.

The VR plugin is just £99 per year. More details here:
http://www.veesus.com/veesus/index.php/products/data-studio

Here's a couple videos of it in action:




If you want a trial version please let me know.

Hi! thank you for this response. I looked up the beta version of JeatStream VR but can't find it anywhere. Do you know if this is still available.?

Hello Mark! that video is exactly what we're looking for. I've never tried before Arena4D Data Studio. But the way the guy in the video navigates within the PointCloud is what we need, with the power to add 3D Models and surf around these.

Does it only work with the Oculus Rift? In that case, does it work with the rift and touch or just the rift?

I'd love a trial. Thank you!

IValencia,

Currently it's just working with the Oculus Rift and any USB/Bluetooth gamepad. We plan on expanding the VR options this year, so watch this space..

Our Point Server product is also capable of streaming to web browsers via the PoTree framework. There are a few examples online of people who have modified the PoTree viewer to run with VR headsets, including Google Cardboard, etc. So that is potentially another option.

If you want the trial just drop me a PM here with your email address, or contact us through our website and we'll get you up and running.

Many Thanks

Mark
