curvsurfCurvSurf develops and distributes real-time 3D object/geometry recognition, measurement, and extraction SDK for 3D imaging/measurement applications for tablets, mobile and 3D scanning devices. Unlike many solutions, CurvSurf’s FindSurface, using innovative geometric abstract based algorithm, can handle 3D image processing in dynamic real world environment with significantly faster speed. By using FindSurface, users can rapidly develop solutions for automated 3D geometry recognition, measurement and tracking applications. Its fully automated object detection and parameter estimation software can create clear images with accurate dimensional measurements instantly from large volume of image data in unordered, incomplete and error-contaminated point cloud. Our solution enables point cloud data from Cameras, UAV, Satellite, Aerial & Industrial Scanners, Robots and Handheld devices to automatically extract 2D/3D primitives in real time.  Read more
