MODELING AND INSPECTION
City planning tasks require detailed 3d models of urban landscapes. MLS can be used to model the building facades.
VIRTUAL, 3D DESIGNS
A LiDAR point cloud allows designers to test various configurations in a virtual world that recreates the real world in high accuracy.
Our MLS system can be effectively used to monitor the transportation corridors. It will provide increased efficiency and also the ability to monitor hazards in real-time. Mobile laser scanning can also be used to analyze structural damage caused by vehicular impact on bridge overpasses due to vehicle height exceeding the bridge clearance.
MLS allows for in-depth monitoring of accretion and excretion along the cliffs, as well as monitoring of large land mass movements. In many areas, MLS systems can rapidly obtain finer-scale changes over a much larger region.
DEVELOPMENT OF CAD MODELS FOR BASELINE DATA
Mobile LIDAR data can be converted to CAD models to serve as baseline information. This baseline data can be used for further construction development like slope stability near the roadway, intersection improvement projects, pavement quality monitoring and pavement volume calculation.
The data collected for roadways can be used for several geometric analysis including stopping sight distances, adequate curve layouts, slope, super-elevation,drainage properties, lane width, and pavement wear. Mobile LiDAR can be an effective tool for cross slope determinations. MLS data can be used to evaluate pavement smoothness and condition including rutting, ride quality, rehabilitation, texture, and automated distress.
MLS systems are capable of providing clearance data for highway overpasses, bridges, traffic signs, and even roadside high power lines. These height clearances can be used to determine if a modeled object can navigate safely through the constricted section.
Digital, as-built records provided by LiDAR can provide significantly more detail than traditional methods. These digital records are very useful through all the stages of the infrastructure life cycle through planning, design, construction, and maintenance.
TOPOGRAPHIC MAPPING & DTM
Topographic mapping is an important application of MLS, including earthwork computations. MLS provides accurate and precise change detection.
MLS systems provide a permanent record of site conditions that can be measured at any time after the initial collection of point data. This allows users to remotely measure length, volume, elevation, deflection, smoothness, camber, curvature, and others.
Inventory mapping is an important application of Lidar point cloud. Common features extracted from MLS point cloud data include traffic signs, trees, building walls, barriers, street lights\poles, reflective striping, and curbs.
