Norsemeter STUDIO - Pavement Surface Expert
The Norsemeter Studio, Pavement Surface Expert off-line data processing software utilise the field data
from Roar measurement units to provide more comprehensive road surface characteristic data.
The reporting facilities of the software are designed very flexible to fulfil requirements
from various users of road surface data, such as Pavement Management Services, Road authorities,
Transportation Institutes, etc.. With this software and Roar measurement device you will get all
necessary characteristic surface information such as friction, micro and macro texture,
indication of braking action required for your road operations.
The Norsemeter Studio, Pavement Surface Expert software is based on a modular design to fit
the exact needs of the user. The basic module includes all the basic functionality required
such as filtering of field data, tagging of data, statistical analysis and reporting.
There are several optional modules representing different kind of calculations and predictions based on the field data.
The main purpose of this software is to help to integrate ROAR's parameters into any existing
pavement or road database of Road authorities or Pavement Management Systems.
The other purpose is to analyse pavement conditions by using the ROAR's data.
Therefore, the basic module has two modules. One is road tagging and statictical module and the
other is the graphical presentation module. (see Figure 2 Main screen)
The road tagging module will refer the measurements to a road reference system using the
following input parameters: road number, section number, lane number, section length,
starting distance, forward/backward direction, ROAR's position (L/M/R).
