In Terratec we often do collision detection analyses in connection with infrastructure projects. Analysis can be done in cases with special transport to detect whether the transport can be done without collision along the road or railway.
In tunnels especially, clearance profile requirements are changing as trucks, buses, and trains get larger. Another area where collision detection is useful is in the power industry, for example detection of vegetation that can potentially damage overhead power lines if left to grow unchecked, or trees that could fall on the lines.
As basis for these analyses we usually use laser data which is processed in a suitable way for the individual analysis. Client input is critical to decide on the proper processing parameters.
