Survey and inspection of bridges in the Province of Naples

Survey and inspection of bridges in the Province of NaplesOne of the areas with the greatest potential for the use of laser scanning technology is the inspection and as-built documentation of road infrastructure, particularly bridges.

Siteco used its Mobile Mapping Road-Scanner3 system, equipped with three FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D, for a project commissioned by the Province of Naples that included the survey of 37 bridges. This allowed them to achieve excellent results in times that would be unthinkable with traditional surveying techniques.

Thanks to the three FARO Focus3D, Road-Scanner3 can capture almost 3 million points per second, with a mirror rotation speed of 100 Hz. Taking into account the surveying speed of 30 to 40 km/h, the density of the points obtained is comparable to that of a static scan, with the additional advantage of eliminating areas of shadow or limited coverage due to low radius incidence and distance.
