Mandli Communications

Mandli is an industry leader in specialized highway data collection and the integration of 3D pavement technology, mobile LiDAR, and geospatial data collection equipment.

Mandli Applications

Urban Modeling

Mandli's LiDAR data collection system is an excellent tool for providing accurate models of urban areas. These models can be used to plan improvements, inventory assets, and evaluate civil concerns.

Asset Inventory

Mandli's LIDAR, imaging, and positional data is used to extract relevant assets from collected highway data. All assets can be referenced to the GPS and right-of-way imaging data.

Intersection Modeling

Railroad and street intersections can be some of the most dangerous areas on the road. Using our LiDAR and imaging systems, Mandli reproduces realistic and accurate representations of these intersections.

Asset Encroachment

Power lines are often a difficult, time consuming, and hazardous asset to inventory manually. Power lines and surrounding vegetation can be automatically catalogued with Mandli's LiDAR data collection system.

Right-of-Way Imaging

Mandli's right-of-way imaging system is capable of recording digital images and data in a variety of weather, speed, and lighting conditions. The imaging software controls data collection with real-time image viewing, camera controls, GPS data, route setup and management features, and DMI calibration and operation.

Curve and Grade

Mandli's positional system uses differential GPS and an inertial measurement unit (IMU) to extrapolate road geometry such as curve, grade, and cross-slope. The vertical grade (slope) and horizontal grade (cross-slope) are standard outputs from Mandli’s POS LV system.

About Mandli Communications

Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Mandli is an industry leader in specialized highway data collection and the integration of 3D pavement technology, mobile LiDAR, and geospatial data collection equipment for various Departments of Transportation throughout the United States. Together with a suite of supporting GIS software and services, Mandli has enabled their clients to design, manage and maintain safe and efficient transportation infrastructure networks.

ME XI CO Van Build

In October 2016, Mandli completed their first international data collection vehicle build for City Best Mexico and Top Trade, Inc., based out of Mexico City, Mexico. The data collection vehicle is currently being used for intersection and sign surveys across the country, with pavement, imaging, LiDAR, and GPS data being collected for each intersection. The base vehicle consists of a Mercedes Sprinter and features the Laser Crack Measurement System, two Velodyne HDL-32 sensors, the iXblue ATLANS-C, and three high-resolution digital right-of-way cameras.
