Fugro Roadware’s ARAN recently achieved new Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) certification (specified in TxDOT Test Method Tex-1001S) to validate that profiling equipment can collect accurate longitudinalprofile and roughness (IRI) with high repeatability. Both our flagship ARAN 9000 and the hitch-mounted ARAN 7000 road profiler passed all tests successfully. The ARAN 9000 was first certified in 2009 using Selcom point lasers. This latest certification used the Selcom RoLine lasers, which are increasingly being specified by customers for network-level projects. This was the first time in the industry that the new, more stringent requirements adopted by TTI were used to certify inertial profilers.
“I am pleased to see the industry standards for inertial profilers being tightened,” said Michael Nieminen, Director of Technology Development at Fugro Roadware. “Clients now expect project-level accuracy onnetwork-level projects, and these new standards help to ensure that the collection equipment can deliver.”
“The new RoLINE sensors combined with Fugro’s intelligent roughness algorithms remove the effects of wheel path wander, and pavement construction artifacts such as ‘concrete tining’ and joints” added David Lowe, Managing Director.
