Road curvature and screening analysis

In order to ensure that traffic safety on the road is taken care of, demands are made for, among other things, free visibility and turning radius. A screening analysis can be used to document the actual free visibility of a road user who is traveling by car along the road network.

Based on good point clouds from laser data, Terratec can assist with mapping curvature on the road and calculating sight distance. In the sight analysis, fixed obstructions are taken into account along the road corridor, such as vegetation and objects such as signs and the like.

Speed limits on the current road can be included in the analysis. In this way, areas where the visibility is too short in relation to the given speed limit on the site can be identified and targeted.
