New Mobile LiDAR Vehicle

We have recently added a Honda Big Red (although green) to our Mobile LiDAR fleet.  The customization occurred over the course of a weekend thanks largely to Wayne's Body Shop in Jackson, MS.  In addition to fabricating the rack and mounts, the roll cage was shortened to allow for seamless loading & unloading into our dual-axle fiberglass trailer.  The trailer has a 300 gallon fuel tank to allow us to access remote areas and deploy the UTV for rapid survey activities. The acquisition and deployment of our new tool shows Baker's continued commitment to Mobile LiDAR and it's applications - no matter where jobs may take us.

Again, our thanks goes out to Wayne's Body Shop for their rapid turn-around and superior work.

What is Mobile LiDAR?

Mobile LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) systems are comprised of vehicle-mounted lasers, cameras and GPS/INS navigation systems to capture highly-detailed and accurate three-dimensional (3D) topographic information for surveying and engineering applications. Michael Baker International became an early adopter of Mobile LiDAR technology by acquiring our first system in 2009, with further expansions in 2014 and 2015 that increased our fleet to four (4) Optech Lynx SG1 Mobile LiDAR systems. Over that period our systems have completed more than 300 projects throughout 29 different U.S. States (and multiple countries), and encompassing hundreds of thousands of miles. Our project portfolio includes applications in roadway design, 3D modeling, railroad corridors, signaled intersections, utility infrastructure, asset management, pavement condition assessment and airport infrastructure.
