Road Survey Vehicle

ROMDAS has been developed as a cost effective and modular system designed to collect road and asset data using any vehicle

ROMDAS (ROad Measurement Data Acquisition System) is developed by Data Collection Ltd. (DCL). Starting life as a low-cost modular system, ROMDAS’ design evolved with technology to collect asset and pavement information using locally sourced road survey vehicles. Whether a private consultant, government department or research institution, ROMDAS offers great flexibility and ease of use to accurately measure a variety of pavement data quickly.

The Central ROMDAS system includes the core hardware components, odometer, interfaces and software licenses for collecting survey data. You can then add modules to this Central system for recording additional datasets. This innovative design can be installed on almost any vehicle. The system is designed to enable users to tailor it with modules specific to the needs of their projects, without having to spend their budget on components they do not need.

The interactive image below details the different modules available for the ROMDAS system. Hover your cursor over a specific module in the image to learn more.

Pavement Condition Survey

Add-on Modules

ROMDAS offers low-cost devices for use in tough and unpaved conditions as well as the latest in laser scanning technology for accurate analysis of highways or rural roads

Data Acquisition Software

ROMDAS Data Acquisition Software interfaces between the survey computer and ROMDAS hardware to collect and analyse data

ROMDAS Data Acquisition Software interfaces between the survey computer and ROMDAS hardware to collect and analyse pavement data. It is supplied with the central ROMDAS System and used in the vehicle for recording and processing the data into Microsoft Access databases. The software will display real-time status for all modules during surveying. ROMDAS Data Acquisition software offers useful features such as location referencing, event/condition rating and travel time surveying to enhance the value of the data being collected.

We also offer real-time remote support to our customers. All our existing customers with a current Annual Maintenance Subscription (AMS) can update their software for free. Learn More.

  • Inbuilt calibration and self-testing features
  • Real-time status and display of all modules during surveying
  • Automatically reference data to distance/chainage and GPS (if connected to a GPS receiver)
  • Process data onsite for immediate results
  • Low processor requirements means it can run on any laptop or computer
  • Free office version for processing/reprocessing survey files in the office

In-Built Keycode Feature

ROMDAS offers a powerful and flexible feature to collect and reference a range of information during surveys. Users can define a large list of conditions or inventory that operators can record at the press of a button. In simple terms - if an operator can see an event while surveying then they can record it instantly. This is commonly used for recording assets and creating an inventory of; signs, drainage, bridges, traffic lights, safety assets, pavement types and conditions, shoulder and pedestrian conditions, surface defects and much more.

All keycodes are referenced with distance/chainage, LRP references and GPS coordinates, as well as any comments made by the operator. Keycoding is simple, very easy to use and can greatly enhance the level of information collected during surveys.
