LiDAR in road maintenance – end user feedback
Good quality roads are necessary for the smooth transportation of resources and vehicles. Based on recent research in the University of Eastern Finland, LiDAR data could provide an easier, faster and cheaper way to locate problematic places on the roads without spending significant time for field inventories that demand time and money.
Research has been done in the measurement of the road surface quality with LiDAR. Service quality indicators, such as structural condition, seasonal damage, drainage condition, bridges, surface wear, visibility, coppicing and flatness indicators, can be calculated to classify the road conditions and target maintenance work.
The goal of this project is to link the research results to the road maintenance operators in other European countries (as Spain, Portugal or France) and learn about their needs in terms of road maintenance (for example, in Mediterranean countries they may need the roads in good condition for fire management purposes), some results could be presented to the local potential users in these countries and get new research or business projects based on the results made in the University of Eastern Finland.
