RACAS brought to you by SHEPHERD, is a mobile road condition survey and reporting tool for profiling road infrastructure assets.
As You Drive
The RACAS road condition survey tool works by capturing high resolution imagery and GPS data as you drive. Users are able to record road condition, remedies and defect information using custom forms on a touchscreen mounted in the vehicle.
Data captured during the road condition survey can be used to create capital renewal works programs for your road network and can be integrated with your existing GIS and Asset Management systems.
Data gathered with Mobile RACAS can be assessed with Virtual RACAS, (our reviewing tool) which enables the viewing, editing and reporting of data collected.
Photos in High Definition, so defects can be shown in excellent detail and capture rates as fast as three every seconds.
Photos captured during the road condition survey are played back like video – and the speed altered to either skip over areas or slow down for detail.
Our RACAS software is easy-to-use, adaptable and reliable at the user interface – a touchscreen is used which is supplied with mounts to the vehicle.
The RACAS software can be placed in a mode so that someone can just drive the road network quickly if a flood event is imminent.

High Sensitivity GPS
