The fundamental limitation for laser scanning of an object is that the object should be stationary. In this letter, we propose a novel technique for obtaining 3-D point cloud of a moving object by applying motion correction, so that the point cloud is correct in relative and absolute sense, and represents the true shape of the scanned object. In the proposed technique, a laser scanner is used to scan an object which is mounted with a GPS/IMU system and stationed at a distance from the scanner…

Error analysis of motion correction method for laser scanning of moving objects
The error budget is developed and the analysis of one such ‘motion correction’ method, which assumes availability of position and orientation information of the moving object and uses it to apply correction to laser data, thus resulting in correct geometry despite the object being mobile during scanning.
