It resembles a Google van, but the van you may have seen driving around the city is more focused on the street. A two-person team is using the vehicle to evaluate more than 1,200 miles of streets, using lasers and digital cameras to collect 3D data. The system also records information on signs and markings, signals, curbs and gutters and bridges. Once the data is processed, it will be used to evaluate and score streets to determine maintenance or replacement.
