Roads & Bridges released an article that features NV5 Geospatial (formerly Quantum Spatial) and their work with the Oklahoma DOT (ODOT), uncovering the unknowns about sensor performance and accuracy in real-world projects for transportation uses.
Using a RIEGL VQ-480i sensor, NV5 Geospatial’s comprehensive low-altitude sensor solution (CLASS) which combines two RIEGL VUX-1LR’s with nadir and oblique imagery, along with a single RIEGL VUX-1; various applications were tested. In this ground-breaking research project on LiDAR performance and accuracy over a 2-mile stretch of rural highway, the results showed great potential and more flexibility for transportation projects. Furthermore, the results also displayed the capability for broader use by utilities, airports, railways and general engineering design.
