The SmoothRide vehicle-mounted resurfacing system for paving and milling projects uses a combination of the company’s core technologies, designed to deliver a smooth surface while managing the quantity of material for each project.

Topcon says it has developed a way to scan roads at highway speeds with no need for lane closures, crash trucks, escorts or any other typical road survey collection obstacles. With its new RD-M1 scanning unit, the system maps the existing surface elevations, providing more accurate data needed to estimate materials, as well as form the basis of the final design surface. The workflow consists of a vehicle-mounted road scan, existing and finish surface design, and machine control using GNSS with sonic tracker sensor guidance.
