Using 3D Visualization to Optimize a Road Construction
Besnik Camaj

The main purpose of this work presented in this paper, is the possibility to optimize a road construction using visualization in 3D, in a scale 1:1. With virtual reality technology, we can visualize the whole road and the environment around. Therefore the possibility to control the position of traffic signals, SOS telephone cabs, noiseprotection road walls, safety exits, tunnels height or eventual bridges during the virtual visit of the road. In the same time, we can control the visibility of the road by driver, from start till the end of the road. Doing this, we can help architects, technicians and civil engineering groups to modify their plans before they start to construct the real road. In this sense, we can contribute to make the work properly from the beginning in order to save the modifications after the road is over, which have a very high cost as an impact.
