3D Pavement Imaging

The Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS) uses lasers, high speed cameras, and advanced optics to acquire high resolution 3D profiles. The unique 3D vision technology measures both asphalt and concrete surfaces up to 4m in width at highway speeds (up to 65mph or 105 km/h). The LCMS acquires the road surface with 1mm resolution allowing for the visualization and characterization of all features on the road surface.

LCMS data is acquired and compressed in real time in the vehicle to minimize storage needs. The system detects and analyzes cracks, lane markings, rut depths, potholes, macrotexture, patches, raveling, and sealed cracks.

The new generation LCMS-2 is now available with collection rates up to 28,000 profiles/s, five times faster than the LCMS-1. This allows smaller cracks, especially transverse cracks, to be detected more consistently than in the past. The vertical accuracy has also improved from 0.50 mm to 0.25 mm.

Right-of-way Imaging

The Ladybug 5+ captures high quality spherical images using six 5MP cameras for a 360 degree view of the roadway and surroundings. The images can be viewed in panoramic mode, 360 mode, or individual directional images can be extracted at any desired camera angles.

The ICC collection platform also supports all Basler GigE cameras. All cameras are triggered on a fixed-distance basis, image capture is precisely synchronized to GPSTime and DMI for, and cameras are calibrated for asset inventory and geo-referenced measurements from the images.

 

GPS Positioning

The Trimble DGPS system is standard on most ICC systems. The optional Applanix POS/LV (Position and Orientation System for Land Vehicles) system is designed to operate under the most difficult GNSS conditions found in urban and suburban environments, compensating for poor GPS satellite visibility. It delivers highly accurate, uninterrupted positioning and orientation information with reliability in almost any environment.

 

LIDAR

Capture highly accurate 3D point clouds of roads and bridges with Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR). The data can be processed with industry standard packages like TopoDOT and TerraSolid to extract accurate 3D models of the road, structures, and surroundings.

LIDAR is available with most vehicle configurations.
