  ALASCA (Automated Road Monitoring Pilot Using 2D Laser Scanning) is a regional innovation pilot project. The objective was to develop and test a laser scanning unit that would enable crowd-sourced data collection from roads, especially by using large goods vehicles (LGVs), with a 2D-laser scanning unit attached to them. The idea was to bring new solutions for road monitoring, especially for quickly changing winter conditions. This report summarises all the results from the pilot project that lasted from winter 2017 until spring 2018.

The project has been funded by the regional innovation experiment instrument AIKO. The financing has been granted by the Regional Council of Lapland. The project was implemented by Lapland University of Applied Sciences with the help of local and national stakeholders.
