Abstract

A study of the development of a car-mounted system for mobile hyper-spectral mapping that integrates thermal cameras, near-infrared cameras, and 3D LiDAR data. The data produced by this system is used for city scale thermal energy analysis, which allows property owners to determine the most cost effective energy efficiency improvements for their buildings. The data collection system uses ROS to record several terabytes of data during each night of operation. This case study will consider our internal best practices and lessons learned during development of a robust system running ROS for thousands of miles.
