Hawkeye 2000 Series

The Hawkeye 2000 Series is a professional and highly specialised range of survey products designed to meet the most demanding survey applications. The modular design of the system enables complete scaleability for future growth and can be installed in a wide variety of vehicles due to its limited requirement of computer hardware.

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.

All systems are manufactured in compliance with ISO 9001:2008 quality systems.

The H200 Automatic Crack Detection (ACD) system enables automatic detection of cracks and other road surface features

The ACD system comprises two high performance 3D laser units that are fitted at the rear of the survey vehicle, vertically
above the pavement. The unit projects a laser line onto the pavement and the image is captured by the camera, allowing it to measure the transverse profile of the pavement to a 0.5 mm height resolution.

The ACD is fully integrated into the Hawkeye platform meaning outputs are precisely aligned, both linearly and spatially, with the measurements from other sensors. We also have the ability to analyse the ‘crack maps’ using our own proprietary software. The flexibility the Hawkeye software allows reporting of the type, severity and extent of cracking, in a manner that meets the specific needs of the user.

Features

  • Rut depth measured over 4 m width at 1 mm transverse resolution
  • Rutting measured in accordance with methodology found in ASTM E1703
  • Day and night operation, unaffected by shadows
  • Low power consumption
  • Data compression algorithms to minimise storage
  • Lightweight and waterproof
  • Measurements are possible on all sealed surfaces
  • Data is linked to chainage and GPS coordinates
  • Operational at highway speeds to reduce survey time and costs.

Applications

  • Network-level pavement condition assessment
  • Accurate quality assessments for contractors
  • Routine pavement monitoring surveys
  • Contract validation.

Available outputs

  • Hawkeye custom cracking reports
  • Rutting
  • Lane marking
  • Pavement defects (potholes, kerb and edge drop off)
  • Raveling.
The H2000 Digital Laser Profiler (DLP) can be configured with a variety of sensors to enable the collection of road condition data

The data collected includes: International Roughness Index (IRI), Ride Number (RN), Rut Depth, Mean Profile Depth (MPD), Sensor Measured Texture Depth (SMTD) and other parameters. The system comprises a vehicle-mounted measurement beam equipped with ARRB’s specially developed lasers, enabling the collection of longitudinal profile, roughness and macrotexture (MPD and SMTD).

Features

  • Upgradeable to allow for the addition of more lasers
  • Rugged, aluminium beam design
  • Operational at highway speeds to reduce survey time and costs
  • Results are independent of vehicle type

Asset view Digital Imaging System
The H2000 Asset View Digital Imaging System (DIS) is capable of visually identifying and locating roadside features

The system comprises the latest digital camera technology and produces crisp, high-resolution video frames to ensure a continuous digital record of the roadway. The calibrated video cameras accurately log digital images of roadside assets against other parameters such as distance and GPS. Fully motorised lenses enable the real-time adjustment of the optical zoom control, focus and iris for high-quality images.

Up to eight cameras can be supported, each in a waterproof enclosure and all controlled through the common Hawkeye interface. The Hawkeye Processing Toolkit software ensures that the survey database can be reviewed, edited and processed quickly and efficiently. The data from each module can then be compared against other results and exported to pavement and asset management systems.

        

Features

  • Provides continuous, high-resolution, full-colour digital images
  • Supports up to eight cameras
  • Uses .AVI storage files
  • Data is linked to chainage and GPS coordinates
  • Operational at highway speeds to reduce survey time and costs
  • Images can be used to measure, geo-reference and note points of interest.

Applications

  • Visual identification of roadside features and assets
  • Right-of-way roadside condition assessment
  • Asset location for GIS applications
  • Road safety assessment.

Pavement View Digital Imaging System
The H2000 Pavement View Digital Imaging System (DIS) is utilised for visually identifying and locating deterioration and cracking

The system utilises the latest in both area scan or line scan digital camera technology, to produce high-resolution video images.
The cameras accurately log digital images of the pavement against other parameters such as distance/chainage, GPS and profile. The camera and lens are fitted into a waterproof enclosure which is mounted on a vehicle roof rack and optional extendable beam.
The Hawkeye Processing Toolkit software ensures that the survey data can be reviewed, edited and processed quickly and efficiently. The data from each module can then be compared against other results and exported to pavement and asset management systems.

The H2000 Gipsi-Trac Geometry System collects road geometry information and navigation data to produce continuous 3D maps

The system includes the Gipsi-Trac microprocessor-based system, which records and combines inertial data from gyroscope, accelerometer and distance sensors 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.
