Design and Engineering

Bring the site to you.

At your fingertips, unlike other inspection processes and technologies, you are provided a 3D infrastructure model, the physical site’s digital twin, that is exceptionally detailed and accurate.

View, asses and measure obstacles, technical infeasibilities, slopes, distances, and elevations.

Downloadable and shareable in a various file formats and units of measurement, these digital assets will save time, effort and money when (re)design or engineering is needed.

LAS file export supports inches, feet, or meters in full
or reduced resolution as preferred.

Convert LAS file to digital elevation maps in minutes.

Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way

On August 8, 2023, the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board issued its final rule that provides minimum guidelines for the accessibility of pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way.

The final rule is published in the Federal Register

The Great Lakes ADA Center presented a webinar on October 5th, highlighting the changes to the final rule since the proposed draft published in 2013.

Reputation and Know How

With 100+ years of experience, leadership, and innovation, Rieker’s Advanced Data Acquisition and Measurement (ADAM) solution combines hardware and specialized software resulting in an innovative world-class solution that captures 3D digital infrastructure models (a digital site twin) and enables highly detailed and accurate measurement and analysis on these models.


ADAM leverages Rieker’s proven inclinometer (H6 Flex Series) technology to automatically determine and set a zero reference plane. The automated reference plane (ARP) equipment includes parts manufactured and calibrated to meet National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certification standards.

Created with Rieker’s expertise in computer vision tools and techniques and integrated with global positioning system (GPS) technology, the result is a location specific, highly detailed, and accurate 3D digital infrastructure model enabling NIST traceable measurement, analysis and reporting.

Effective and Efficient Capability

Using the Model Analysis Tool (software) included with ADAM, measurements made on the model (the 3D digital site twin) are consistent, repeatable, and NIST traceable.  As needed, model views including all measurements can be saved and shared with 3rd party stakeholder and exported in various file formats for use (import) in 3rd party software.

ADAM also includes a Job Management Tool (software) that enables  scheduling with due dates, categorization (grouping), mapping, assignment, and monitoring of job status.

ADAM powers a Total Solution for ADA Curb Ramp Compliance and Transition Plans.
