Multiple data reporting
sensors are strategically placed throughout the patcher that monitor
production, performance and locations of your pothole patcher and crew. As
potholes are repaired, the data is automatically gathered by the InPave System
and transmitted back to the office. Data includes quantity of potholes
repaired, location, time and material used for each repair, and material levels
and temperatures. Retrieved from any computer with reliable internet access,
the data can then be turned into easy-to-read reports that assist managers and
owners in evaluating current and historic production to verify patching
performance and material usage, troubleshoot pothole problems and help reduce
inefficiencies. By analyzing this data, agencies and contractors can also
modify their pavement management plans to maximize road quality and budget use.
There is no software to download, and the InPave System data can be downloaded
into multiple file types for uploading into pavement management systems.

 

An
in-cab, 7-inch (178-mm) color touch screen mobile data terminal allows the
operator to quickly enter the quantity of material loaded when filling at the
asphalt plant for recording purposes. Otherwise, the InPave System does not
change the overall process for the pothole patcher operator.

 

Managers
and owners can choose the reporting level of detail. Standard reports that show
patch location, amount of material used or the type of material used can be
quickly accessed for daily evaluation. Custom reports can also be created for overall
or single-event needs. All reports are gathered via three application systems
that automatically work together:

 

  • InPave Navigo
    Explorer

    Monitors and maps patcher location within the last 24 hours and allows you
    to click on a unit(s) to see status and details.
  • InPave Navigo Reports – Provides historical data
    and reporting based on standard information captured by each patcher, so
    you can develop detailed reports by selecting specific parameters and
    timeframes.
  • InPave Manager – Allows for highly
    customizable patcher, crew and job reporting based on the information you
    input and can include repair, machine, material, crew and other summaries
    and reports.

 

The InPave System is available for new and current
Bergkamp Flameless Pothole Patchers.
