The latest version of XenomatiX’s road lidar XenoTrack inspection system covers two lanes in one pass.
XenoTrack Dual Lane was officially launched this month at GeoWeek, a major event for the geospatial and 3D sector that took place in the US city of Denver.
XenomatiX, a solid state lidar company specialising in road asset management and digital twins of roads, launched the XenoTrack Single Lane system last year. Now, the company says that with the Dual Lane system, it “took a step-in easing 3D pavement measurement”.
Traditional road assessment systems are limited to measuring the width of one or part of a road lane on each pass. But XenoTrack Dual Lane surveys two neighbouring lanes in a single pass. While the vehicle drives in one lane, the system simultaneously measures the road surface condition of that lane and the neighbouring lane.
All XenoTrack products including the Dual Lane system, use a highly accurate lidar as main component, offering 3D and intensity maps of the road surface.
Additionally, 2D RGB camera images can complement the 6D Road Survey concept. The RGB colour model is an additive colour model in which the red, green and blue primary colours of light are combined to reproduce a broad array of colours. The name of the model comes from the initials of the three additive primary colours - red, green and blue.
Both the Single Lane and the Dual Lane systems fit on any standard vehicle, saving the customer having to invest in expensive and dedicated survey vehicles. The XenoTrack system is set up in no time and the measurement vehicle can drive faster than 70kph, further increasing the efficiency of the surveys.
XenomatiX’s solid state lidars are based on a multi-beam lasers concept and mature, scalable semiconductor technology. The company’s main product lines consist of XenoTrack and XenoLidar. XenoTrack collects and processes a wide range of data to enable applications like digitising the road, IRI (International Roughness Index), rutting analysis and more.
The company is based in Leuven, Belgium, and employs about 50 employees in Belgium, Germany, US and China with a distribution network around the world.
