Pavement engineering with LiDAR

Traditional pavement engineering requires special geospatial equipment, high precision, resources, coordination between stakeholders and a lot of time, while execution time is always under pressure. Engineering offices, road construction companies and road equipment companies are searching for innovative solutions that facilitates and highly automates the process flow. Measuring road foundation at the speed of a driving vehicle without regular alignment with total stations creates the opportunity to virtually design the new road faster, more accurate and ready for execution. This paper presents a use case in development phase on how a special Road LiDAR is becoming a breakthrough in the process.
