Mandli’s Integrated LiDAR System

Mandli Communications, Inc. will be giving demonstrations of our new advanced data collection platform at the upcoming SPAR 2011 Conference, March 21-24, at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel Convention Center in Houston, Texas. Our newest collection vehicle utilizes mobile LiDAR as a core measurement technology for aligning the data streams of several next generation highway infrastructure sensors.

Pavement, retroreflectivity, imaging, and positional data are all simultaneously collected and synchronized to the LiDAR system, providing a comprehensive data set perfect for asset extraction and inventory. Onboard systems include two Velodyne HDL-32E LiDAR sensors, a Pavemetrics LCMS, Applanix GPS, and Mandli’s own RetroView, Digilog imaging, and DVX integration technologies.

The collected LiDAR data provides a realistic, three-dimensional reference to the additional data sets, allowing for advanced measurement and visualization methodologies, as well as the automatic extraction of vertical and horizontal clearances.

We will be providing demonstrations of our vehicle in the hotel parking lot during the conference. Since we receive a large number of requests to see the vehicle please email us if you would like to reserve a demo time.

Mobile Scanning Primer: Monday, March 21, 3:00 – 5:00 PM
