Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Design
CategoryMobile LiDAR / GIS
Since the Broadcast message being transmitted to the RSUs is only as valuable and accurate as the data collected, the use of accurate Mobile LiDAR was essential in the collection of required geometric features. The following geometric features were collected and extracted for each location: lane lines, edges of pavement, cross walks, stop bars, center of lanes, a geographical center of intersection for each as needed location. Since 2017, SSI has successfully collected thousands of lane miles of connected vehicle infrastructure throughout Michigan.
Mobile LIDAR data was also collected in a manner that achieved a high accuracy in order for the datasets to be utilized and recycled downstream for other purposes.
The SSI Solution
SSI was selected to provide Mobile LiDAR services on an as-needed basis for MDOT Connected Vehicle projects. Tasks for this project consisted of LiDAR data acquisition, extraction of features, and the development of Connected Vehicle deliverables in a GIS format.
