The Roughometer III is a cost-effective, easy to install, portable device which provides objective and repeatable roughness results. The Roughometer III is a World Bank Class 3 roughness measurement device, which actually exceeds the specifications of the category.
Whilst the Roughometer is a response-type roughness device, it eliminates the uncertainties associated with the vehicle, such as the suspension or passenger weight, by directly measuring the axle movement with a precision accelerometer.
The system is suitable for use on both sealed and unsealed
roads and is capable of collecting up to 13,000 km of data. Practical and easy-to-use, the Roughometer III provides a simple technique for road quality assessment and now has the advantage of an integrated GPS unit.
Once a survey has been undertaken, the Roughometer III processing software enables the data to be formatted into custom graphs, tables and maps.
- provide objective data for true evaluation of the roughness level of the road
- objectively compare and analyse which roads are in need of repair
- monitoring roughness deterioration trends
