RetroTek Mobile Retroreflectometer Innovation

Our mobile retroreflectometers are transforming road surveys; accurately measuring across the full lane width in a single pass, the retroreflectivity (RL), night-time visibility and day-time contrast ratio of Road Lines, Markings and Symbols at normal traffic speeds, reducing survey times by 50%.

Simultaneously measure the retroreflectivity (RL) of line and road symbol markings across the full width of the lane (left and right lines plus all central markings).
Measure the absence and presence of reflective pavement markers (RPMs) / road studs.
Fast survey processing with powerful software that produces real time results and GPS tagged videos for more efficient reporting.

Our range of Mobile Retroreflectometers:

Retroreflectometer - RetroTek D - Front View

Day & Night Operation Worldwide
(Excluding USA)

The innovative road marking survey mobile retroreflectometer, capable of carrying out full lane width surveys in a single pass, day or night.

Retroreflectometer - RetroTek M - Front View

Night Operation Worldwide
(Excluding USA)

The RetroTek-M retroreflectometer is one of the first mobile systems capable of measuring the full lane width in a single pass.

Retroreflectometer - RetroTek MU - Front View

Night Operation for the USA

The RetroTek-MU mobile retroreflectometer is one of the first systems available in North America capable of measuring the full lane width in one pass.

Our RetroTek mobile retroreflectometer systems provide:

Customer Referrals & Comments on RetroTek Mobile Retroreflectometers

“We were very satisfied with the survey results and impressed with the RL accuracy of the RetroTek-M and the ability to detect the reflective pavement markings (RPMs) / road studs to within 3% accuracy over 1km.  This information was very helpful in assisting our maintenance department to prioritise maintenance of road markings and reflective pavement markings / road studs where most needed and plan future maintenance schedules.”

Andrew Elliot, Network Manager, M50 Concessions Ltd.

“The flexibility of the RetroTek-M has allowed Northern Road Markings to meet and exceed the stringent requirements set by Transort Infrastructure Ireland, its ease of setup, its ability to measure line retroreflectivity, the presence/absence of barrier reflectors and reflective pavement markings (RPMs) / road studs on both sides of a lane as well as providing a platform to capture junction condition makes the RetroTek-M a competitive choice.”

“Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) were very happy with the survey results and impressed with the RetroTek-OnLineView software software with interactive data base and video analysis. The timescale was tight (12 weeks) and delivery was enabled by the efficiency of the RetroTek-M system.”

Mr. Conor Fitzgerald, Senior Network Operations, Transport Infrastructure Ireland

“The flexibility of RetroTek has allowed ERC to meet and exceed the stringent requirements set by ERA. Its easy setup, ability to measure line retroreflectivity on both sides of a lane and then illustrate these results on the MultiView mapping & video interactive platform, made the RetroTek-M a competitive choice”

“ERA was very happy with the survey results and impressed with the RetroTek MultiView Cloud software with interactive data base, mapping and video analysis. It gives good overview of results and opportunity very easy to plan further road marking replacement plans.
The timescale was tight and due to weather conditions, it was very hard to keep in timescale. But despite that the delivery was enabled by the efficiency of the contractor ERC Consulting Ltd and RetroTek-M system”.

“the machine is easy to calibrate and easy to use. After the calibration, we performed some test runs after dark the machine performed very well and above expectations. The output is easy to understand and easy to process. The clear training instructions made it very easy to operate the machine.”

“The support from RMS is more than sufficient, they are eager to learn from us and are flexible and willing to adapt to country specific situations.”
