Mississippi to Use LiDAR for Road Construction


An outline of Mississippi

The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be using light detection and ranging (LiDAR) to improve road construction efficiency and safety around the state, according to report in Transportation Today.

LiDAR determines ranges or distances by targeting an object with a laser and then measuring the time for the reflected light to return to the receiver. The technology does this process millions of times per second to generate data on the area measured. That data is then converted into a 3D model of what was measured.

MDOT said it had purchased LiDAR drones to add to its fleet of vehicles that use LiDAR to take measurements and map out road construction projects.
