OUR CLIENTS

 

Hawkeye 1000 Series
The Hawkeye 1000 range is the result of ARRB’s extensive research into pavement and asset management.

The economic benefits of the 1000 Series and fit for purpose specifications make it an ideal solution for both video and road profiling applications. Most importantly, the 1000 Series is fully compatible with other Hawkeye products, enabling full data integration across the entire range.
Our advanced research and development program ensures we provide our clients the best products, utilising the latest research and technologies.
Collecting accurate, time stamped data is assured in Hawkeye through the use of our innovative development, Heartbeat. The Heartbeat module ensures that all data is accurately linked to a primary key and allows for the integration of current and future data acquisition modules, meaning seamless upgrades of your equipment.
H1000 Digital Laser Profiler
The H1000 Digital Laser Profiler (DLP) measures longitudinal profile, roughness and macrotexture (MPD and SMTD).
A World Bank Class 1 profiler, the H1000 DLP measures road profile using accelerometers and precision laser sensors, to compensate for vehicle body movement.
The DLP is completely portable , utilising a detachable beam that comes complete with a tow-bar mounting kit, making it perfect for less frequent survey demands.
An accurate Distance Measuring Instrument (DMI) and the Heartbeat module are used to precisely link the data to distance measurements.
Used in conjunction with the Hawkeye Processing Toolkit, you have the ability to produce tables, graphs, reports and exports from your collected data.
The H1000 DLP is capable of supporting up to two digital imaging cameras, DGPS and a Gipsi-Trac Geometry system.

H1000 Gipsi-Trac Geometry

The Gipsi-Trac Geometry System uses a combination of inertial sensors to collect road geometry information.

The unit includes the Gipsi-Trac microprocessor-based system, which records and combines inertial data from a gyroscope, accelerometer and distance sensor with GPS position. The built in dead-reckoning capability allows for position data to be recorded when in tunnels, under bridges and locations with little or no GPS coverage.
It outputs data in a variety of customisable geographic projection systems that allow the user to export the data in their GPS native format, with no conversions necessary.
The Hawkeye Processing Toolkit software ensures that the survey data can be reviewed and processed quickly and efficiently. The data from each module can then be compared against other results and exported to most pavement and asset management systems.
The H1000 Gipsi-Trac system is capable of supporting a profiler with up-to three lasers, two digital imagery cameras and DGPS.
