At rFpro we convert LiDAR scanned data to Digital Road Models

Digital Road Models

Our library houses a large number of LiDAR scanned race and test circuits along with a growing number of public roads and proving grounds.

Building Digital Circuits and Road Routes

Since 2007 rFpro has built Engineering quality and photo-realistic High-Definition (Hi-Def) circuit models from accurate LiDAR surveys. The LiDAR-based track database increases every year and now includes most of the F1 circuits, North American Indy & NASCAR circuits as well as La Sarthe, and the 20km Nordschleife. Public road routes, including specially commissioned OEM test routes can also be modelled, all with accuracies to within 1cm in x and y and less than 1mm in z.

To cater for differing budgets and graphical quality requirements we offer three qualities for digital road builds all based on the same LiDAR scanned data points:

Automatic - Believable scenery but not matching the real-world.

Representative - Scenery will match the type of real scenery alongside the road, however no attempt will be made to match exactly.

Hi-Def - Targeting contemporary IG hardware with high-spec CPU & GPU at a minimum 1920x1200 at 120Hz per channel. Within the constraints imposed by the hardware, the aim of Hi-Def graphical quality is to match as closely as possible the surrounding scenery and buildings.
