Rail As-Built Services

Rail LiDAR & 360 Video Mapping

Reality IMT’s Rail LiDAR services can optimize your infrastructure asset documentation with our Houston-based as-built surveying, all while spending minimum time on the track. Our Hi-Rail Mapping System is composed of a UHD 360 degree video mapping camera with GPS, LiDAR at 700,000 measurements per second, Dual GPS and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). Hundreds of Miles can be mapped in a single pass.

Rail As-Built Surveye-LiDAR Rail Survey,Feature extraction and geometry

Bring hundreds of miles of track onto your desktop

Vehicle-based rail as-built surveying of the Houston area and nationwide railways utilizes 360 degree video mapping technology that can capture all dimensions and geometry of above-ground assets along the entire track’s right of way with high positional accuracy.

This short video shows sample LiDAR data collected on a railway at track speed. The pointcloud data was then classified based on ground, vegetation, and track. Once data is classified, features can be extracted based on location and dimensions

In addition to our Houston-based LiDAR service, Reality IMT deploys a 360 degree GPS video to visually document linear assets and corridors. The railroad industry has been benefiting tremendously from LiDAR, 360 degree video mapping, and as-built surveys from our Houston-based company since the ability to access the tracks is limited due to continuous traffic flow. Data collected from the LiDAR and camera can be done in a SINGLE PASS without disrupting track time. In addition, the amount of data collected, far exceeds what a conventional survey can produce and meets the required accuracy by FRA.
