Support Road Survey

Laser Crack Measurement System

Automatically collect a wide variety of pavement defects using the latest laser scanning technology

ROMDAS LCMS uses the latest laser scanning technology from Pavemetrics for automated road condition survey. LCMS collects high accuracy 3D road surface profiles for automated pavement condition surveys. These 3D profiles are then analysed using industry standard algorithms to calculate a variety of important datasets. Along with automated pavement crack detection and classification, this scanning laser unit also measures potholes, patching, rutting, macro texture (MPD), raveling and joints/faulting.

Thanks to its operating principle, the ROMDAS LCMS offers several practical features that ensure flexibility and quality of data collected at normal traffic speeds, and in day or night time. This multifunctional module is an excellent option for private and public entities wanting to perform high-accuracy network level road surveys without the need for traffic management.

Key Benefits & Features
