Formatted abstract

A three-dimensional laser scanning system has been designed for application in the mining industry. Many opportunities exist for application of this technology in that field.

A planar laser scanning device was used to develop the three dimensional scans. This required rotation of the scanner in order to capture a series of fan shaped scans. The project involved the design and manufacture of the hardware for the system and the development of software. The software includes communication with the laser scanner and the implementation of motion control to control the scanner rotation. Image processing software was also developed to generate surface profiles from the scanned data. The operation of the scanner is included in the thesis.

The Literature review covers current monitoring methods and the current technology in laser scanning.

The designed laser scanning system performed successful three-dimensional laser scanning. Further research needs to be done to incorporate movement in the scanning process.
