Topcon Positioning Group Thermal Mapper system is designed to monitor temperature segregation in asphalt paving. It also is used to measure performance and to provide accurate compliance reporting—all with real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning accuracy.

The mapper records temperature readings behind the paver and provides a visualization to operators, in real time, indicating whether the mix falls within a pre-defined temperature range and if any segregation is limited within specifications. The system also creates data reporting files to download for applications such as DOT compliance through an interactive Pavelink module, the Topcon cloud-based logistics application for asphalt paving.
