StreetMapper Aids Abnormal Load Navigation

The transportation of abnormal loads on UK roads causes average delays per vehicle of 15-25 minutes and the resulting congestion can cost up to a £1600 ($2500) per mile. Planning of suitable routes is now being made easier following a development by IGI & 3D Laser Mapping. Using StreetMapper – a mobile laser mapping system – together with advanced Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, it is possible to create real world 3D visualisations of proposed routes modelling the clearance envelope of the vehicle and its proximity to possible obstructions. The StreetMapper ‘Clearance Detection Module’ simulates the abnormal loads’ progress along the route identifying height and width restrictions and highlighting potential collision objects...

Five StreetMapper’s take to the roads in Japan

StreetMapper, the mobile laser mapping system, has announced delivery of its fifth system to Japan in less than a year. The StreetMapper equipped vehicles enable 3D laser scan surveys to be undertaken at normal road traffic speeds and are being used for a range of mapping projects across Japan. StreetMapper, a joint development between the German navigation specialist IGI and UK’s 3D Laser Mapping, is distributed by Japanese company Mirukuru...

StreetMapper Cuts Cost of Highway Surveying Projects by 50 Percent

Dutch surveying company Geomaat is capturing millimetre accurate measurements in record times to support a range of highway design, construction and maintenance projects. Using the mobile laser mapping system StreetMapper, and specially developed point cloud software, Geomaat can calculate highly accurate cutting, milling and asphalt figures, create as built models and undertake change detection. “In the past these types of measurement were undertaken using total stations which was time consuming, and therefore costly, and had a big impact on other road users,” commented Jolle Jelle de Vries, Managing Director of Geomaat. “For example a 10km stretch of highway would have taken at least 20 nights to survey, each night requiring extensive traffic management or road closures. The resulting measurements would then have taken about a week to process. Using StreetMapper we can deliver a new design, from start to finish, in less than a week!”...

StreetMapper Laser Surveys Australia’s Coastal Highway

October 31, 2011 -- StreetMapper, the vehicle-based laser mapping system, has completed a survey along the North West Coastal Highway in Western Australia. Travelling at normal traffic speeds, the StreetMapper system captured survey grade data achieving millimetre accurate measurements of the road surface and roadside features. StreetMapper mobile surveys replace the need for surveyors using tripod mounted lasers along the highway making it a much faster and safer process, as well as reducing disruption for other road users...
