Hawkeye Surveying Vehicles

Hawkeye – high speed data surveying vehicles

Road Science has two high speed data surveying vehicles the Hawkeye 1000, and the Hawkeye 2000.

These vehicles are operated by Road Science’s highly skilled technicians who survey roads right throughout New Zealand.

The Hawkeye 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.

Benefits of the Hawkeye include:

  • Visual outputs from dedicated software and high resolution cameras, which allow for office based site analysis and observations.
  • High speed data collection reduces costs and decreases the delivery of data timeframes.
  • Data is linked to chainage and GPS coordinates, simplifying location of data and features.
  • Data is provided in a format that is able to be directly uploaded into office software.

Hawkeye complies with the following international standards:

  • ASTM E950: Longitudinal profile
  • AASHTO PP37: Pavement roughness
  • ASTM E1845: Pavement macrotexture
  • ISO 13473: Mean Profile Depth (MPD)
