Advantages of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) Method for Train Tunnel

Recently JPSurveys utilised 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanning method to precisely determine the 3D as-built alignment of the existing LRT tunnels in order to facilitate design and construction work above the tunnel
Left: scanning work at the site; Right: 3D virtual point cloud created  

As the tunnels (3 stretches; few hundred meters each) are relatively short in length, the traditional, competitively-priced 'total station method’ could also be feasible. However, for this method to work, the exact locations of the required cross sections (initially estimated at 9 nos) needed to be specifically identified and confirmed before the start of field survey work.

Eventually, two options were proposed to our client for consideration: total station method (option A), or TLS method (option B). We are pleased with our client's farsightedness in choosing Option B albeit a costlier option. It was the right choice as changes were indeed made after completion of the field survey work: the final locations of the required 9 cross sections have since been altered and additional sections were also requested by the engineer/planner

If the client had chosen option A, it would have meant remobilizing our team for the second time to pick up those cross-sections. Thus, the advantage of TLS method enabled the entire tunnel to be captured as one continuous 3D model; thereby allowing an infinite number of detailed cross-sections to be extracted without the need to re-survey the site - significantly saving costs, eventually.

Precious time lost is also averted: the working time allowed in such a busy train tunnel is typically limited to a few hours past midnight i.e. between the running of the last train for the night and the start of the first train in early morning hours. This is compounded by the time-consuming process required to obtain permission and securing safety escort from the train operator or authority to resurvey the tunnel the second time.

How multi-drone survey benefits our clients

Preparation of two drones to be flown simultaneously

Ground Control Point Survey prior to drone survey at the quarry site

The multi-drone operation, i.e. flying of multiple drones simultaneously at a project site is usually done to expedite data acquisition time at the site. A good-to-have capability especially for coverage of vast areas.

However, multi-drone capability becomes essential and critical for certain projects (irrespective of the size) if the time window for data capture is very short and specific.  

Recently we were privileged to have served two of our esteemed clients in these unique projects/ circumstances:-

Project 1: drone survey was required over a quarry site at a specific date where a new contractor is expected to take over from an out-going contractor. The site conditions needed to be 'frozen' and photographed not only for record/reference purpose but more importantly to determine the volume of stockpiles and material for an agreeable compensation and to avoid any future claim/dispute, etc. Furthermore, the client has requested minimum disruption to the costly site operation which was temporarily halted during the drone operation.

Project 2: drone survey was required to capture water level at high tide along the coastal area for the purpose of creating flood map of the project site.

Thanks to our team's capability to fly multiple drones simultaneously (with mid-air collision avoidance capability), we were able to successfully complete both critical missions smoothly; thus not only fulfilling the customers' need but exceeding their expectation.

JPSurveys provides competitively priced drone survey services for sites ranging from several hectares to hundreds of hectares. Kindly contact us for any survey requirement.
