Abstract

The raising of the transport infrastructure sector through the digital transformation of roads is a factor for sustainable and intelligent development of the Country, in order to create safer, cheaper, better-used and fruited infrastructures generating data and services for a better travel experience for citizens, facilitating freight transport and helping to determine a technology-friendly ecosystem for businesses. A specific need for the digital transformation of roadways consists in acquiring the geometric features of existing roads. The process is known as reverse engineering, or Scan to BIM, and generates object models that can be implemented and usable on BIM platforms. BIM is the tool that best suits these operational needs in the various fields and in all the advancing stages of the life cycle of the work, from conception to disposal. The case study shows the solid parametric modeling of the rural road SP430 "Cilentana" (SS18VAR), one of the main route for the Southern areas of Campania Region. The BIM platform provides the ability to extract road alignment, profiles and cross sections from the 3D model at any time. Processes can be dynamically updated as a result of any modifications made to the model for extraordinary adjustments and/or maintenance of the road. Autodesk Software packages Civil 3D and Infraworks were used in a combined approach.
