Mobile Laser Scanning

Our Mobile Laser Scanning service offers very high-resolution vehicle-based LiDAR surveys, captured at traffic speed with point cloud densities of over 500 points per square meter and survey grade centimeter accuracies.

Synchronized LiDAR point clouds and imagery can be obtained from the same survey to derive enhanced LiDAR products, including true color point clouds, ortho imagery of the road surface, and 360 panoramas to support a broad range of applications.

In addition to mobile mapping surveys, LiDAR, and image processing, we offer services to provide road asset intelligence products derived from mobile LiDAR point clouds. Road surface defects, such as potholes and road marking flaws such as marking paint wear can be extracted quickly in a semi-automated process.

Road surface and road marking condition reports can be provided for vast areas with high accuracy for quick decision making, to simplify planning, and to target motorway maintenance campaigns.

Fast Capture
This system captures LiDAR and imagery at road traffic speeds to cover vast areas quickly

Ground Level Detail
Unlike data captured from the air, see all detail otherwise obscured such as under bridges and tunnels

High Accuracy
Captured data is millimetre-accurate and yields fantastic results

Reduce risk and costly road closures by capturing images with the traffic


Our mobile laser scanning system can acquire at up to 1.2 million measurements per second ensuring very detailed real world information is collected. The scanner gives the user the ability to capture point cloud information from a moving platform with a level of precision that will complement existing survey techniques. This also has the added benefit of minimizing exposure of field staff to high-risk environments such as the highway and rail network.

Typically, the mobile mapping systems are ideally suited for corridor mapping, and therefore the market focus is on road and rail networks. As is the case with terrestrial scanners, the range of the sensor is dependent on the reflectivity and orientation of the objects or surface but generally, sensors are suitable up to 250m.
