Laserlux® G7 Mobile Retroreflectometer

Quickly and accurately measures the retroreflectivity of pavement markings using a scanning laser source. The Laserlux® G7 provides continuous pavement marking assessment and evaluation within the flow of traffic. It is the only commercially available instrument that does not require a dedicated vehicle or vehicle modifications to operate. It operates day or night and can be operated in a tandem configuration with instruments on both sides of the vehicle for full lane measurements. 

Agencies have always recognized the important correlation between pavement markings’ visibility, retroreflectivity and roadway safety. As automated and autonomous vehicles become more prolific, good markings become even more critical for continued safe operation on mixed-use roads. These agencies are embarking on the challenge of assessing and managing the pavement markings of their entire roadway system.

RoadVista® is the pioneer of mobile retroreflectivity measurements and testing, having developed the first Laserlux® mobile retroreflectometer under a grant from the U.S. Federal Highway Administration more than 20 years ago. RoadVista® has been able to leverage that success, compiling input from our large customer base to develop the simplest to use, most automated, instrument in the world.

The Laserlux® G7 provides continuous pavement marking assessment and evaluation within the flow of traffic. It is the only commercially available instrument that does not require a dedicated vehicle or vehicle modifications to operate. It operates day or night and can be operated in a tandem configuration with instruments on both sides of the vehicle for full lane measurements. As a side-mount instrument with a test distance of 6 meters (19.7 feet), the measurement area remains very close to the front of the vehicle. This is greatly advantageous to front mounted instruments that measure 12 meters (39.4 feet) in front of the vehicle because the line of sight is not affected by traffic in front of you or curves and undulations in the road that change the measurement geometry and make it difficult to keep the instrument pointed at the line.

  • Drive in the middle of the lane – no need to place the instrument directly above the line
  • Side-mounted unit with measurement zone very close to the vehicle – eliminates geometry issues with curves and undulations in the road and avoids the measurement path being blocked by other vehicle traffic
  • Compact and light-weight – the entire system can be checked as luggage on a plane
  • Measure both sides of the lane at the same time with the LLG7-Tandem configuration
  • Measurement area is close to the front of the vehicle, eliminating many road geometry effects and traffic blocking the measurement view
  • Laser-diode based system – virtually maintenance free
  • Counts and inventories reflective pavement markers (RPMs, cat eyes, road studs)
  • Measures double lines individually with separate RL values for each line
  • Measures the contrast between the pavement and the line
  • Measures the nighttime perceived pavement marking line width
  • Operation of the unit is Wi-Fi wireless from any device – phone, computer, tablet, etc. No software or apps to install
  • Proven laser-based optics that scans pavement markings more than 400 times per second
  • Auto-positioning system for continuous measurement and geometry management
  • High definition video recording
  • Squid-Mount™ securely attaches to virtually any vehicle
  • Provides continuous retroreflectivity measurements at all speeds up to the posted speed limit
  • Secure Wi-Fi operation and onboard data storage allows for near wireless function aside from a single 12-volt power cable outlet to the vehicle
  • Data is stored in a removable USB flash drive – don’t waste time downloading your data at the end of the day. Simply take the flash drive with you and plug it into your laptop
  • Fast, easy, accurate calibration – completely self-contained with no need to measure distances or find level ground
  • Measures and records the width of the stripe
  • Meets ASTM E1710 and EN1436 – 30 METER GEOMETRY  –    15 METER GEOMETRY available as an option
