Lidar turns iPhone 12 Pro into a precision meter

It’s one thing when a manufacturer speaks about the merits of a smartphone, and another thing when a device is praised by uninterested people. For example, the developers of the Canvas application for 3D modeling praised the iPhone 12 Pro. More precisely, not so much the smartphone itself as its camera equipped with a laser rangefinder.

The specificity of Canvas is such that the accuracy of the data for volumetric scanning of premises is of fundamental importance, and here the iPhone 12 Pro has proven itself to be the best. According to Canvas employees, confirmed by manual measurements using a tape measure and a laser rangefinder, the iPhone 12 Pro has a 1-2% error rate when scanning. While the error when using conventional cameras without a laser rangefinder is about 5%. And in some cases even more.
