To determine rutting the transverse laser profile is used, initially filtering the results to determine the road surface shape independent of surface texture. Specialized algorithms are then used to determine the road rut depth as per the Austroads standards.
Rutting can be calculated via a number of different algorithms, including straight edge, sliding straight edge and taut wire. The length and position of the straight edge is also adjustable if required for specific purposes.
Rutting can be export as tables, directly into a number of PMS systems or export geospatially.
