Mobile LiDAR: Modernizing Condition Assessments  An innovative approach to data acquisition

The Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) will deploy and demonstrate Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology to detect, monitor, and track deficiencies and degradation of light rail assets along the Light Rail corridor. The project will provide a more accurate asset inventory of track, structural, and wayside asset conditions and enable the MD MTA to develop performance outcomes and maintenance prediction system for its light rail assets.
