NOTE: As of Gocator firmware version 4.6, multi-sensor systems can be set up and aligned directly in the web interface. This application guide, which describes setting up such systems using the SDK, is therefore no longer the only method for multi-sensor alignment.
This application note demonstrates how a synchronized network of three or more Gocator sensors mounted side by side to scan a wide and generally flat target surface can be system calibrated. After system calibration, data from all sensors are reported in a common coordinate system.
Typical applications are scanning a wide road surface or measuring the dimensions of large size metal ingots.
This application note includes example code developed using the Gocator Software Development Kit.
