MOBA Mobile Automation says that its PAVE-IR system is designed to improve paving by offering a new, non-destructive method for detecting thermal segregation in real time.
Segregation is a leading cause of premature failure in asphalt roads and the system uses infrared sensors to produce a thermal profile for the entire project. PAVE-IR is said to deliver real-time QC/QA data to the operator on a colour touch screen and stores the files for additional analysis in the office. The complete job is documented with GPS coordinates and a temperature scale.
Paving speed and paver stops are also recorded, allowing contractors to adjust their paving or trucking operations to maximise profits while providing a high-quality product free of segregation.
