Purpose of condition survey and evaluation with ARGUS®-AGIL
Periodic collection of condition data by means of metrological instruments is essential for objective, economic evaluation and conservation. Cycling lanes, pedestrian paths, rural roads and unpaved roads have so far undergone mainly subjective, purely visual assessments. One reason for this has been a lack of appropriate measurement systems.
Metrological surveys of surface features have, for the first time, provided data as a basis for making decisions on efficient conservation measures and/or new construction measures. Such data also allow evaluations of the safety and comfort of the routes under examination.
Our two ARGUS®-AGIL units have been used on more than 20,000 kilometres of cycling lane. ARGUS®-AGIL is therefore by far the leading commercial system for measuring the condition of cycling lanes in Germany.
