Title: SLOPE STABILITY LIDAR
Abstract:
A Slope Stability Lidar that directs a beam of optical radiation into an area on a point by point basis, each point having an elevation and azimuth and a processor that acquires data and processes the data to compile direction data, range data and amplitude data for each point, segments the acquired data into blocks of data defining a voxel, averaging the acquired range data within the voxel to produce a precise voxel range value for each voxel, comparing voxel range values over time to identify movement and generating an alert if movement exceeds a threshold.
