Towards a Virtual Reality Interactive Application for Truck Traffic Access Management
This paper presents an ongoing work towards the realization of a virtual reality system providing an advanced visualization of the access of trucks to a critical road segment, such as a tunnel. The system is currently based on optical and laser sensors, and is able to recognize a truck in a dedicated road lane, and to produce a 3D model of the identified vehicle. The 3D model is then employed inside an interactive 3D application usable in real-time by personnel in a dedicated access/traffic management center. The final goal is to integrate several layers of sensor data (e.g., also including infrared information on the temperature of the truck components) in order to support monitoring and control of the critical road segment.
