LASE has implemented its LaseTVM application at EuroTransStroy’s construction site for the extension of the M11 motorway between Moscow and St Petersburg. The laser-based system determines the exact volume of purchased bulk materials on dump trucks, to prevent load differences.
The system is installed at a stationary checkpoint next to the motorway where a 3D laser scanner from the LASE 3000D-C2-11x series is mounted on a metal framed truck gate. Laser measurement data are processed to the LaseTVM software, and displayed to the operator.
Two further IP-cameras are installed at the front and back of the gate, in order to recognise dump trucks’ licence plates. LASE’s Russian distribution partner, OOO Fest, has applied its ScanMonitoring video analysis software as a subsystem to evaluate each truck’s unique ID.
An additional video camera on top of the gate monitors the trucks, showing the level and type of material to the operator. A cover hood protects the 3D laser scanner and the cameras from inclement weather, while an additional lightning device allows camera recognition by night.
