RetroTek-D maximising data collection across a full lane width for more efficient surveys
Demand for road marking condition assessments in increasing, thanks to a combination of pressure to increase road safety and the introduction of ADAS safety warning systems on vehicles, which depend on good quality visible road markings day & night. This represents a great opportunity for Survey Contractors who can establish which road markings need remarking and may also be required to validate the quality of new markings laid.
Our innovative RetroTek-D dynamic road marking retroreflectometer, includes the latest technology developments in machine vision, LED lighting and articifial intelligence to enable Survey Contractors to maximise the amount of data collected in one pass and reduce survey costs. Our secure front-mounted RetroTek-D system measures across the full lane width to reduce your survey costs by up to 50% meaning quicker surveys, less distance travelled and lower fuel costs. This includes measurement of the retroreflectivity (RL) of right and left lines and critical centre markings, safety warnings and symbols. It also records presence or absence of road studs and day contrast ratios of markings, as used by ADAS safety warning systems in vehicles.
Best of all our advanced technology ensures minimal survey operator intervention during the survey as the system automatically detects line colour and type including skip and continuous markings. Being front mounted makes survey driving easier, with drivers adopting a normal driving position on the road. This also avoids issues with kerbs in built up areas or car parks, at toll booths and also eliminates the need for regular stops to clean lenses, which are all common problems with side mounted systems.
Efficient, safe & easy
50% reduction in survey operator and fuel costs compared to side mounted retroreflectometers.
Our Customer's Feedback
“It’s amazing what this piece of technology can deliver. I am so fortunate enough to this technology and am learning so much about it and the benefits of using it.”
Emma Bourke, Senior Practitioner at ARRB
"technical support is second to none"
“We are delighted with the performance of the RetroTek as it measures the striping on both sides of the lane in one pass without the need to switch the sensor from one side of the vehicle to the other. At the end of surveying, all the data can be quickly prepared & sent to district TX Dot officials, without the need for hours of post-processing.
The RetroTek technical support is second to none.”
Jay Green, veteran retroreflectometer operator, Stripe-A-Zone
"a competitive choice"
“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 a competitive choice.”
