Mosaic and iTwin by Bentley – hardware and software combine for Digital Twin creation
Mosaic Camera Systems is excited to reveal its latest advancement in offering its customers an easier path to solving their 3D modeling needs. The company has recently joined Bentley Systems’ iTWIN developer program to enhance its future offerings.
The coupling of the two technologies – one hardware and one software – generates impressive results for users in the Digital Twin sphere, specifically related to 3D modeling of large-scale infrastructure.
iTwin is Bentley’s “Open Platform For Infrastructure Digital Twins”. The platform provides the foundation for building SaaS solutions to design, build, and operate infrastructure assets. Users can accelerate their application development by allowing the iTwin platform to handle data integration, visualization, change tracking, security, and other complex challenges.
Mosaic is the designer and developer of industrial-grade mobile mapping camera systems. Their cameras have already proven themselves to be the new industry standard in mobile mapping cameras, as powerful tools for collecting high resolution 360º street-level imagery capable of creating highly realistic 3D models for use in Digital Twins. Recently, Mosaic utilized iTwin technology to produce 3D reality meshes from Mosaic X images.
The first stunning results of the mesh created with iTwin technology from Bentley Systems can be seen here:
This dense mesh (seen above) consisting of drone photos and mobile mapping system photos for a total of 11,800 photos for 153GP was created in just over 7 hours with the iTwin solution.
The dense mesh of only mobile mapping system photos without aerial imagery, was 20GP less (133GP) and took only six and a half hours.
Mosaic’s forthcoming offering will allow users of its cameras to efficiently create intricate 3D reality meshes from Mosaic X images on a large scale. The solution can produce precise reality meshes in a cost-effective manner, requiring minimal investment of time and resources.
One of the standout features of this offering will be the ability to merge aerial and street-level image data, resulting in a fully accurate and realistic model of entire cities or industrial sites, as demonstrated in the above example.
