3D-R1 is a remote operated survey vehicle equipped with a Riegl LMS-Z laser scanning system. The robot recently completed a scan of the San Jose silver mine in Mexico where it spent 3 and half days mapping 2.2km of "underground drives, stopes and access ramps", doing more than 80 scans per day and producing nearly 100 million data points. In less the a month the mining company was able to replace old mine drawings with accurate 3D data that "corresponded exactly with existing topographic aerial photographs and contour maps of the mine site".
