Robotic missions in remote or unstructured environments rely on 3D vision to accurately map scenes and construct geometric models. In order to effectively utilize 3D vision data, the Interactive Computer-Enhanced Remote Viewing System (ICERVS) provides integration and modeling of 3D data for robotic systems and operators. ICERVS supports mixed-mode modeling of sensor data and geometric objects (3D computer-aided-design data) to enable interactive construction of geometric objects that match features of interest in the work environment. During ICERVS development, different approaches for mixed-mode modeling have been implemented to compare their utility and effectiveness. Results support the conclusion that multiple approaches should be included in 3D visualization and modeling systems.
