Question

Can I open or close doors while mapping with NavVis VLX?

 

Answer

We do not recommend that you open or close doors during a mapping, as this can create problems with post-processing and SLAM:

  1. By default, moving objects (e.g. doors) will be filtered out by the dynamic object filter during post-processing.
  2. In edge cases, SLAM can break as a result of the unexpected movement that VLX will interpret as moving walls.

Opening and closing doors should be done as part of the preparation of a mapping site.
