Volume calculation from point cloud - Single view


Do you think it is possible to measure the volume from a 3D point cloud if the point cloud is generated from a single top view of the object with ZED 2i camera? If yes could you please let me know how can I measure it?

Hi @code_lover,

It is definitely possible to perform this type of task using our cameras, we’ve had customers perform volume measurement before in different industries.

We do not provide any tools or samples to perform this, but I would strongly suggest looking into this open source project: GitHub - ANYbotics/grid_map: Universal grid map library for mobile robotic mapping which creates an “elevation map”, and you could then measure the volume of your object.
