  • Mobile LiDAR Scanning

    Mobile LiDAR scanning collection system coupled with automated data extraction can process up to 40 bridges per day. Accurate data on vertical clearances of roadway structures is critically important in oversize route planning. Horizontal clearance measurements must also be maintained. Traditionally collecting this data can be dangerous or can cause congestion with work crews subject to significant traffic hazards. Work must be performed during available traffic breaks which can induce errors. From a system-wide perspective clearance information in many cases is incomplete, inaccurate, difficult to maintain and difficult to access. Obtaining survey grade accuracy at traffic speeds is the proven, most efficient way to accurately measure various structures and roadway features.

Transcription: LiDAR can be considered an acronym for Light Detection and Ranging. It is a remote sensing technology that's used to measure distances, and it doesn't act on its own. It actually -- LIDAR typically includes three independently operating technologies. There's LiDAR, which is essentially a giant laser ranging device. The laser-ranging device sends out millions of pulses. Today, they can send out over 400,000 pulses in one second. That technology gives you the distance or the range to the target and there are two other technologies: GPS, which is Global Positioning System, or global navigations systems, that give you the location of the instrument...

my first foray into controlling an electromechanical actuator with a microcontroller, i built this with 2 specific applications in mind; first, as a potential laser harp system, and second as a primitive object detection system for an autonomous robot i'm building. it is currently programmed to move the servo to 7 different angles, each 8 degrees from the next, pausing each time for 150 milliseconds to give the servo adequate time to find the new position. with these long pauses, it takes a little over 1 second to perform a complete scan. it appears as though 150 milliseconds is more than adequate time for the servo to move 8 degrees (based on the stability of the laser impact points), but that a little more time may be warranted for the retrace sweep (the first laser point exhibits a little motion blur immediately following the retrace). thus, with some experimentation to determine optimal values, the scanning speed might be significantly increased without any loss of precision. i may also experiment with DC motors, spinning mirrors, etc. in the near future, which may be necessary if a larger laser is to be employed. the microcontroller is an Arduino Nano 3.0 with an ATMega 328 microprocessor. the mini-USB cable is for power, firmware programming and USB MIDI output. the new version of the Light Harp OS (LHOS v2.82) supports scanning laser systems in addition to all previous sensor profiles.

A 3D Lidar Scan of the Lower Campus area of the Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT). The Scan was performed by a robotic ground vehicle named ROAMS (Remotely Operated and Autonomous Mapping System) developed by the Design and Manufacturing Institute (DMI) at Stevens Institute of Technology. http://www.dmi.stevens-tech.edu/
