Orbit GT Releases Clearance Checker to Aid Tramway and Railway Maintenance
Orbit GeoSpatial Technologies today announces the presentation of the Clearance Checker for Mobile Mapping at this year’s INTERGEO in Essen, Germany.
“The Clearance Checker is an automatic detection tool that uses any mobile mapping lidar data to check clearances in height and width over any designated trajectory“, says Peter Bonne, VP Business Development and Senior Product Manager at Orbit GT. “With the Clearance Checker, a vehicle contour of any designed size, is virtually driven through the point cloud over a chosen trajectory. Any collision or near-collision is automatically detected and listed for reporting, interpretation and subsequent actions. This tool is a must have for all rail- or tramway exploitation, oversize transport planning, and indeed every road and railroad maintenance or improvement project. This tool is an add-on to the Mobile Mapping Asset Inventory solution and is the first in a range of automated and semi-automated detection tools to be made available in shortly.”
