In addition to the standard events already captured in real-time by the PathRunner XP Data Collection Vehicle, the PathView II software suite can also be utilized to perform detailed asset inventory using a post process that includes all high-resolution imaging and GPS to most accurately assign segments of interest. The high resolution roadway imaging is essential to best assess signage, markings, bridge decks, structures, barriers and surface geometry.
For each client, we design a customized module and calibration file to perform asset inventory of any items of interest. Client-specific or MUTCD data types are used to report (at a minimum) a unique sign number, code, description, dimensions, height, location and GPS coordinates. Both the collected imaging and available satellite mapping are utilized to ensure the highest accuracy of location information.
The 360-degree immersive imaging is also used as a valuable tool to characterize every intersection, railroad or interchange from every known direction. This imaging allows all segments of the road or intersection to be viewed simultaneously in a single, “dome” shaped jpeg and can be collected by simply pre-loading a points of interest list into the vehicle before the collection begins.
