The RetroTek-M retroreflectometer is one of the first mobile systems capable of measuring the full lane width in a single pass.
Traditional side mounted systems would require two passes, meaning the innovative RetroTek device takes up to 50% less time to complete a road survey, saving up to 50% on fuel costs associated with carrying out road marking surveys.
Front Mounted Retroreflectometer for night use
The RetroTek-M mobile retroreflectometer is specifically designed to measure road markings across the full width of a lane in a single pass at night to minimise disruption to traffic. It records all road markings to the left and right sides of the lane, plus all central markings along with the absence and presence of reflective pavement markings and road studs. The RetroTek-M fixes securely to the front of the survey vehicle, so there are no unsightly or dangerous protrusions from the side of the vehicle. This is safer for both operators and road users when surveys are carried out. The ability to measure all data across the full width of the lane in a single pass ensures the RetroTek-M can complete road marking surveys in half the time it would take a single line side mounted mobile retroreflectometer.

At night, simultaneously measure the performance of:
Retroreflectivity of Road Lines/Striping
Retroreflectivity of Centre Lane Markings, Symbols, Arrows, Chevrons etc
Reflective pavement markings (RPMs) / road studs
Presence & absence of Reflective Pavement Markings (RPMs) / Reflective Studs, RPMs
Key benefits of the RetroTek-M System:
Survey cost, time and fuel usage reduced by half
Non-permanent fitting to survey vehicle, so device is transferable
Safer for operator and other road users due to front mount location
Double the ground clearance compared to side mounted systems
No precision driving required to remain close to road markings
Surveys carried out at regular legal traffic speeds
Our latest model, the RetroTek-D mobile retroreflectometer combines all the useful features of the RetroTek-M, with the additional capability of operating at both day and night too!

Designed for faster surveys
The RetroTek-M is designed to be portable and compact, with all data sensors contained within the external unit. The sensors are easily calibrated, without the need for the mounted system to be on a level road like many competitor systems require. The easy-to-use software allows surveys to be carried out by single operators safely, with the ability to quickly add notes regarding road conditions throughout the survey. Only a small amount of cabling is required for use, with an Ethernet cable required for connecting the laptop and a 12v/24v power lead.
