Operate & Maintain
Increase safety, minimise disruption, and improve operation for roads & highways with Leica Geosystems solutions.
There's an App for that.
Leica Captivate Road App - quality check road alignments and surfaces
Empower infrastructure operators to react with proactive and preventative maintenance by providing timely information through scalable monitoring and reality capture solutions that collect existing conditions and create digital twins, extending the life of roads and highways.
Increase transportation infrastructure lifecycle knowledge
Roads need to remain safe, durable and efficient. Whether it is repairing potholes, resurfacing roads and pavement, widening roads or replacing and repairing road assets, surveyors play a crucial role in keeping roads safe and operational.
By creating detailed models above and below the pavement surface with mobile mapping systems, surveyors provide actionable information to improve the operation and maintenance of highways and roads. Such surveys are conducted rapidly and safely, allowing repair work to be precisely targeted and quantified.
Increase safety and minimise disruptions
With our geospatial solutions, highways and roads can be efficiently captured with minimal traffic interruptions whilst keeping field personnel safe.
Our mobile mapping, 3D laser scanning and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) solutions allow you to capture the real world safely and reach locations, either above or underground. The digital model of the highway surface and associated assets can be shared online for collaborative assessment for repair and maintenance activities.
Continuously monitoring a transportation asset on structural movements, increases safety and minimises structural integrity concerns. With timely data to react to failure, risk exposure can be reduced.
Improve highway and road operation through structural monitoring services
Safety on and around transportation infrastructure can be ensured by monitoring roadways surfaces and surrounding areas. Unfortunately, climate change increases the chances of extreme weather events that can impact highways and roads through landslides and erosion beneath the road surface. With our deformation monitoring solutions, warnings can be issued to keep the community and assets safe.
Leveraging Leica Geosystems technology, you can detect changes to effectively manage repairs and preventative maintenance. Real-time monitoring, campaign monitoring and reality capture cloud-to-cloud assessments can all contribute to the effective maintenance of road and highway assets.

Increase safety, minimise disruption, and improve operation
Measuring from a safe distance
Our 3D laser scanning solutions enable large areas to be captured from a safe distance. The Leica ScanStation P-Series laser scanners measure 1 mio points per second and have a range up to 1 km. Using Leica Cyclone software, the model derived from such scans provides the details required to plan maintenance on roads and highways with significantly more density than traditional survey techniques. Being both safe and efficient, 3D laser scanning delivers significant value for road and highway maintenance.
Mobile mapping above and below the road surface
Using LiDAR technology and unique camera sensor solutions, the Pegasus TRK captures the road surface and surrounding area up to 490m. Pavement cracks can be easily identified with a unique imaging solution, and the quality and reflectiveness of street signs can be determined. Travelling at driving speed, long corridors can be collected in a short period. One-person operation of the hardware and the onboard data processing adds to the solution's efficiency and safety. And traffic disruptions are minimised by capturing data whilst moving at the speed of the traffic.
Coupled with the IDS Stream UP Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) solution, mobile mapping below the pavement surface can also be measured to detect any utilities and the thickness and quality of the pavement surface.
Manage project risks for better safety with scalable monitoring solutions
Increase safety onsite and keep investments low with campaign monitoring
Construction can be dangerous, and keeping people and assets safe is critical. Through Leica Geosystems monitoring solutions, you can detect movements on highways and road and initiate precautionary actions. Low-risk schemes may require campaign or manual monitoring over long periods, or when schemes may be of concise duration. Use standard surveying equipment combined with unique products and services from Leica Geosystems to increase investment utilisation.
Improve efficiency and minimise errors with semi-automated monitoring
When higher risk is expected, or access for manual monitoring is difficult or dangerous, people and assets can be kept safe with semi-automated monitoring. Using a total station and the Leica TPS monitoring onboard app and Leica GeoMoS Now! monitoring service, measurement, reporting and charting are conducted automatically. Results can be visualised and reported online to speed up the process to ensure any movements are quickly identified and actions are taken to keep all safe.
Enhance safety with real-time monitoring
For complete peace of mind, Leica Geosystems real-time monitoring should be deployed. For environments where the likelihood of structural movements is high, real-time monitoring is the right choice. Many points can be identified and automatically measured in cycles 24/7 and instantly checked to ascertain if movements have occurred. Real-time notifications are issued, and experts can immediately decide to evacuate areas at risk. Monitoring helps make infrastructure safe.
