Pavement Camera Update

We’re finishing up on the City of Charlotte’s pilot pavement data collection project.  To date, we have collected Mobile LiDAR, Mobile Video, Ground-Penetrating Radar, Roughness and Rutting data for a 50-mile pilot area.  This was the first go-around for our pavement camera and the results were great.

What’s cool about this is that we can now get a great view of the lane of travel and see the low density cracking because we’re basically collecting 2mm pixels.  We’re working on learning how to orthorectify these images so they can be fused with the point cloud to give a real-world representation of the pavement surface that can be viewed in 3d.
