The Topography and Photogrammetry section of the Department of Civil Engineering, Pisa University, Italy, in cooperation with the Geonetlab Research Centre of Trieste University, is developing several methods for the evaluation of road cross-slope. The measurements are performed by means of instrumentation integrated on the Mobile Mapping Systems vehicle GIGI One (GPS Integrated with Glonass and INS One). Two different approaches are followed. The first one involves the use of a low cost monoaxial laser scanner IBEO Ladar Digital Automotive (LD-A), synchronised with an Applanix Position and Orientation System for Land Vehicles (POS LV). For the second approach, the cross-slope is computed only from inertial system data, with a simplified algorithm that describes vehicle dynamics. The paper presents an accuracy assessment of both methods. The tests are carried out on two different datasets, namely on the national road SS58 “Strada Nuova per Opicina”, joining Trieste to Opicina and the national road SS1 “Aurelia” between Rosignano and Campolecciano, near Livorno. The control measurements involve several single point checks carried out with conventional surveying instrumentation. The paper shows that the new proposed algorithm allows to compute cross-slope with an accuracy of 0.4° or better.
