Automatic generation of a floorplan by walking with a backpack mounted 3D camera

When not actively responding to emergencies, fire fighters spend significant time generating "pre-plan" maps of commercial and industrial buildings from which they may one day receive an emergency call. This process is currently slow and labor intensive. We propose a system where a 3D camera is mounted on a backpack or helmet, and a building floorplan is generated simply by walking around that building.
