PTS announce latest Multi-Functional Vehicle (MFV) is fully UKPMS accredited to deliver SCANNER surveys
PTS are pleased to announce their latest Multi-Functional Vehicle (MFV) is fully UKPMS accredited to deliver SCANNER surveys, in line with the latest industry standards and TRL’s auditing regime.
The vehicle utilises industry-leading LCMS-2 system, which allows for automatic defect detection to be achieved through a combination of 3D laser scanning technology supplemented with image based “AI”, bringing together the best technology available on the market.
The system also overcomes the limitations of more traditional SCANNER systems currently in operation around the UK, with the crack detection technology now even more advanced than the human eye, guaranteeing data consistency year on year!
PTS also offer several added-value data parameters via a web-hosted data viewer including: rut shape, crack width and depth, standing water depth, pothole volume, longitudinal construction joint condition, ravelling development indicator, stone loss, and localised deformation.
