In a recent press release the University of South Florida and Faro announced that USF will become a training center for Faro laser scanners. In addition to Tampa, the training will also be available in Michigan, California, and Washington at Faro offices.
Assistant Professors Lori Collins and Travis Doering, Directors of the Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies(AIST), a USF core facility, have joined with FARO Technologies, Inc., the world’s leading provider of portable measurement and 3D imaging solutions, to deliver training on the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D. As a core facility, the high-tech equipment and expertise are available to other USF departments and programs to integrate into research and curriculum projects.
The AIST is focused on interdisciplinary research in three-dimensional and spatial documentation and analysis using non-invasive, non-destructive technologies.
Given the level of interest in the Faro 3D I think the USF staff are going to be very busy.
