p class="Abstract"> Archaeological remains need to be geometrically surveyed and set in absolute reference systems in order to allow a "virtual visit" and to create "digital twins" useful in case of deterioration for proper restoration. Some countries (e.g., Peru) have a vast archaeological heritage whose survey requires optimized procedures that a...

Caves are one of the most conservative environments on Earth, where archaeological, anthropological, climatic and tectonic data can be well-preserved. Here, we present the results of a multidisciplinary method that allowed us to recognize, for the first time in this area, the interaction between Late Pleistocene to Anthropocene neotectonic and arch...

A large part of the archaeological remains still to be discovered and excavated are not in remote and depopulated areas of the earth but are often beneath urban centres that have buried them with centuries of debris and later constructions. Excavating in these contexts is much more complex than digging in rural or sparsely inhabited areas because o...

The survey of archaeological monuments presents particular needs and difficulties. Such surveys must in fact be as complete, geometrically correct and accurately geo-referenced as possible. These needs, however, often face problems of difficult accessibility, the need for rapid timing and complex logistical conditions. The latest generation of mobi...
Article
Full-text available
Caves have been used by humans and animals for several thousand years until present but, at these time scales, their structures can rapidly change due to erosion and concretion processes. For this reason, the availability of precise 3D models improves the data quality and quantity allowing the reconstruction of their ancient appearance, structure a...
Article
In the geomatics field, modelling and georeferencing complex speleological structures are some of the most challenging issues. The use of conventional survey methods (for example, those employing total stations or terrestrial laser scanner) becomes more difficult, especially because of the space constraints and the often critical light conditions....

Full-text available
Sometimes, the georeferencing of a cave in the global reference system can be challenging. Some difficulties may arise when narrow passages do not allow the use of classical topographic equipment or a terrestrial laser scanner. In these specific cases, the surveyor can employ a visual-based approach to produce both the followed path and the 3D mode...

The survey of ancient cave can generally be performed by traditional topographic methods that allow also its georeferencing in a global reference frame; some difficulties may arise when there are narrow tunnels that do not consent the use of a total station or a terrestrial laser scanner. In such cases a visual-based approach can be used to produce...

Limiting the weight of bad signals can recover the accuracy of the GNSS solution in signal-degraded scenarios, where multipath reflections and obstructions can easily generate multiple blunders. The fuzzy integration of the available information related to the quality of the received signals is exploited in this paper to derive an effective weighti...

An autonomous vision-based landing system was designed and its performance is analysed and measured by an UAS. The system equipment is based on a single camera to determine its position and attitude with respect to a well-defined landing pattern. The developed procedure is based on photogrammetric Space Resection Solution, which provides the positi...

Using images to determine camera position and attitude is a consolidated method, very widespread for application like UAV navigation. In harsh environment, where GNSS could be degraded or denied, image-based positioning could represent a possible candidate for an integrated or alternative system. In this paper, such method is investigated using a s...

In the maritime field, one of the most sensitive information is the vessel attitude, because in several scenarios it could compromise the safety of the ship. Gyrocompasses provide the yaw angle with high accuracy, while the roll and pitch angles are directly measured by traditional sensor such as the classical inclinometers. In maritime dynamic pos...

Actually complex underground structures and facilities occupy a wide space in our cities, most of them are often unsurveyed; cable duct, drainage system are not exception. Furthermore, several inspection operations are performed in critical air condition, that do not allow or make more difficult a conventional survey. In this scenario a prompt meth...

In marine biology the shape, morphology, texture and dimensions of the shells and organisms like sponges and gorgonians are very important parameters. For example, a particular type of gorgonian grows every year only few millimeters; this estimation was conducted without any measurement instrument but it has been provided after successive observati...

In guidance and automated control system, especially for unmanned vehicle, attitude determination is an important element. Generally this parameter is provided by sensors like INS (Inertial Navigation Systems), but it can be also estimated with a single camera that “looks” the horizon. This work presents the project of an embedded solution that use...

GNSS surveys performed in critical environments (e.g. the urban canyons, mountainous or dense vegetation area) usually suffer for satellites lack due to obstacle such as building and vegetation. A GNSS mission planning software allows to estimate satellite visibility and DOP (Dilution Of Precision) values along a planned trajectory in order to esta...

The recent developments in automated image processing for 3D reconstruction purposes have led to the diffusion of low-cost and open-source solutions which can be nowadays used by everyone to produce 3D models. The level of automation is so high that many solutions are black-boxes with poor repeatability and low reliability. The article presents an...

For validating theoretical models aiming to simulate the postural behaviour of working personnel one of the possible methods is the execution of trials onboard full-scale ships. This kind of tests requires measuring ship and human movement simultaneously. Up to now, international guidelines for standardizing human postural stability tests onboard h...

3D modeling of floating or semi-submerged objects is a challenging and attractive task for the marine industry especially if the manufacturing of components that have to be replaced or repaired after a damage is necessary or the ship itself has to be converted. Up to now the 3D reverse engineering of ships has required docking operations to carry o...
