We present a next-best-scan (NBS) planning approach for autonomous 3D modeling. The system successively completes a 3D model from complex shaped objects by iteratively selecting a NBS based on previously acquired data. For this purpose, new range data is accumulated in-the-loop into a 3D surface (streaming reconstruction) and new continuous scan paths along the estimated surface trend are generated. Further, the space around the object is explored using a probabilistic exploration approach that considers sensor uncertainty. This allows for collision free path planning in order to completely scan unknown objects. For each scan path, the expected information gain is determined and the best path is selected as NBS. The presented NBS approach is tested with a laser striper system, attached to an industrial robot. The results are compared to state-of-the-art next-best-view methods. Our results show promising performance with respect to completeness, quality and scan time.
