Q.What technology will you use to collect street level pictures?
The sensor system mounted on the car provide the ability to capture a 360 degree picture and support the collection of street level imagery and 3D information. It includes 3 main components:
- Positioning sensors (an integrated GPS/IMU unit) which ensure all data collected is accurately georeferenced;
- Panoramic cameras which provide the ability to capture street level imagery in a 360° field of view;
- Rotating laser scanners which collects over a million data points every second to help create things like 3D representations of the environment.
