Travel and Transport Kept Moving Because of 3D Scanning

can 3D scanning help sell your home faster?

Raise your hand if you like slow moving traffic.  Hmm, no hands. All of us have lives to live, places to go, things to do. There is nothing worse than bottle neck traffic keeping you from using precious time where you need to be.  Intelligence Transport Systems are designed to keep transportation moving as safe, swift, and smooth as possible.  And now with new progress in the LiDAR systems, these Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are going to be doing an even better job.

Whenever something unusual or out of the ordinary happens along transportation routes (ie. flooding or a tree obstruction traffic gets slowed down), people reroute, and things start to get congested. This is one area where 3D scanning services can be of use. In these situation, laser technology is going to be able to detect unusual changes to transport routes and lead to a quicker response to those ready to resolve the problem. Such technology which can quicken response times can be critical.  So much what goes on around the world today depends on transport. A delivery truck in India carrying unto parts may have an effect on a company in the U.S. if there is a breakdown in transport. That in turn may affect your ability to get your car fixed today, which makes you miss you friend’s wedding.

3d scanning - at the speed of light

3D scanning technology can observe subtle changed to landscape that may cause huge problems to transport if not dealt with.  Wind, rain, and snow can all cause subtle changes to the ground that hold structures in place. For example, a massive rain or flood may lead to landslides, structural failures.  The potential of both of these could have been dented if we had the right tools to find where things are unstable. Fortunately, 3D scanning service technology is helping us do that, so that problems can be addressed before they become crippling. And that crippling of transport effects everyone of us. Companies like Groupe Fit Esic in France are utilizing this type of LiDAR technology large trenches of French railroad.

survelliance and analysis

This technology is also expend surveillance of problematic areas to unknown areas.  With traditional methods using situ sensors, observation could only be done with unstable ground already know to be a potential problem.  But new technology has allowed us to get a comprehensive analysis of transportation roots. This means that even areas that no one had expected to be a problem could be detected.  If that isn’t enough, it get even better with the high accuracy that 3D scanning technology provides, and can display results in high resolution. A couple of LIDAR scanning heads has a measure range of 550,000 point/s.  That a big step up from the old devices, and gives a large speed of coverage.


safe, efficient, and saving money

Such technologies, whether we realize it or not, are making travel and transportation more safe and efficient, and it is also saving money for those who maintain our transport systems.  Remember that the next time you make it to work in record time and still have time to sip your coffee.
