Package size estimation using mobile devices

University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

Abstract: In the last fifteen years, the use of smartphones has exploded and almost everyone in the Nordic countries owns a smartphone that they use for everyday matters. With the rise of popularity in the usage of smartphones and not least their technical development, the number of applications to use them continues to increase. One area that smartphones can be used for is virtual reality (VR) and as this area has become more popular, the technology behind VR has become more and more sophisticated. Nowadays many smartphones are equipped with multiple cameras and LiDAR sensors that can be used by the device to create a virtual model of the physical environment. In this project, different methods were evaluated to use this virtual model to estimate the size of physical packages to add functionality to the PostNord consumer app for measuring packages when purchasing postage.
