Laser chamber scanner provides quicker, safer and more accurate highways drainage surveys .

Carnell pioneer use of CleverScan on Highways England network

CleverScan is an intelligent chamber laser/video scanning system, the camera head hosts a processor with a fully loaded operating system that can analyse and pre-process a massive volume of high quality image and sensor data. It maximises mobility, simplicity and speed of the chamber inspection while maintaining the best image quality available. CleverScan is extremely mobile as it weighs 18kg and can be operated from a small van with one or two operatives.

The camera operating system is simple and fast to use, because the software is perfectly integrated with the hardware. Just push a button and the camera does everything automatically, in a few minutes the scan is completed and the survey team can move to the next chamber. The image quality is one of the best on the market with 5 HD camera systems producing a HD video, a 3-dimensional view of the manhole and an unfolded view where you can see all the details of the manhole surface.
