The RD Paver system is designed for real-time monitoring and storage of asphalt paving temperature and paver speed data. The main purpose of monitoring this information is to minimize problems caused by thermal segregation leading to the development of high asphalt air voids content.
RD Paver Service
Measurements with a thermal camera positioned directly behind the paver are taken throughout the entire paving process. The collected data is monitored in real-time through a touchscreen monitor on the paver and remotely through the 3G/4G network. The user-friendly RD Paver interface provides users with detailed information and makes it possible to follow up problems and make immediate corrections.
Ultimatelly this technique helps the paving crew to ensure temperature uniformity which is critical to avoiding areas of asphalt segregation and thus achieving the optimal density.
The RD Paver system also includes a website service for real-time monitoring. The results are also stored in a database for later use. Utilization of the website service makes the quality assurance process transparent to everyone involved.
RD Paver system, an innovative self-reporting pavement quality control tool, facilitates, quick and non-destructive segregation control for the entire width of the pavement.
The collected data will be monitored real time and
problems can be detected immediately.
User Friendly Interface
Through the user-friendly Road Doctor® Thermal Diagnostics interface the user will be provided with detailed information allowing a real time quality assurance and follow up. Thermal segregation will be avoided.
The thermal camera technique detects sections with high void content easily as the paving temperature correlates with asphalt voids.
RD Web Service
The Road Doctor® Thermal Diagnostics system includes a website service – a real time self-monitoring and self-reporting pavement quality tool for the user.
