Drones Above Texas' U.S. 67
The Texas Department of Transportation's (TxDOT) El Paso District has undertaken a Corridor Master Plan for 142 miles of U.S. 67. The goal of the plan is to identify future transportation safety and design improvements that will best serve the communities along the roadway. As part of an early phase of the project, CDM Smith assisted TxDOT by flying drones over U.S. 67 to capture roadway conditions. The data recorded will be used to create 2D and 3D models of the corridor to assist with planning and public outreach.
With drones, we're capturing hundreds of high-altitude digital images. When we're done capturing all the data, we'll put it into our HoloLens mixed reality platform to help with engaging and educating the public.
