Because of its safety, quality, accuracy and efficiency, mobile lidar technology has revolutionized the way accurate pavement data is captured in the field for design purposes.
MoDaC Mobile Data Collection® is McKim & Creed’s trademarked mobile lidar system. Our scanners combine 3D laser scanning, GPS, inertial measurement and video technologies and can be mounted on a van, rail truck, four-wheeler or survey vessel. Our lidar professionals can collect accurate 360-degree data at 2 million points per second while safely traveling at posted speeds. With fewer personnel working beside busy roadways, mobile scanning creates a safer job site. The likelihood of bad-weather delays is reduced due to shortened data collection time. Because the data is collected from a moving vehicle, mobile scanning does not impede traffic flow. And the dense data that is collected lends itself to future data extraction without additional field visits.
