Inertial Laser Pavement Profiler

Talis have recently acquired and implemented a state-of-the-art Inertial Laser Pavement Profiler System with technology that provides the functionality to scientifically capture valid road roughness, rutting and texture data. It is the first laser profiler in Australia with the capacity to capture accurate data at low speeds and is unaffected by the constant stopping and acceleration that is expected on urban road networks. This provides Talis with the unique ability to accurately survey road networks of high traffic volume at peak times, such as inner suburbs and CBD, which would otherwise result in incomplete and inaccurate survey data.

Hawkeye Profiler

Talis utilises a Hawkeye 2000 Plus Inertial Laser Pavement Profiler System to scientifically collect automated road roughness, rutting and texture data across sealed road networks. The survey unit utilises 11 laser sensors, plus 2-line scanners to digitally scan and profile the entire width of the lane. The unit is also equipped with a series of High-res pavement cameras, and high accuracy GPS, that provides a near 360-degree unimpeded view of the road that can be utilised for the assessment of geolocated surface defects and traffic facilities.

Trike Profiler - Asset Management


Talis utilises an e-Trike that is specifically designed to be operated safely on footpaths. The vehicle is friendly to the environment both in carbon footprint and noise emissions. The Trike is equipped with:

  • Specialist GPS for accurate data capture
  • Digital image capture
  • High-Definition (5K) digital video recording
  • Onboard computing for the real time capture of inventory, condition and defect Information

Mobile Mapping – Geolocated Ultra High-Definition Digital Imagery Systems

Talis conducts visual condition assessments of road and infrastructure assets by way of video imagery captured in the field using vehicle mounted camera solutions. Talis employs an ultra-high definition geolocated digital video system which comprises state-of-the-art machine vision cameras, high resolution 360-degree cameras, and high accuracy GPS systems. Talis utilises these systems in conjunction with sophisticated mobile mapping software to facilitate the desktop assessment of geolocated surface defects and traffic facilities across sealed and unsealed networks.

Tailored Field Data Capture Software Solutions

In addition to current methods of automated and desktop-based road and traffic facility condition assessments, Talis also utilises tailored field data capture solutions. Talis employs computer, tablet and phone-based GIS solutions, that allow for tailored infield assessment of roadside facilities such as footpaths, culverts, drainage and other roadside assets. This allows Talis to customise the method of data capture to suit the requirements and specifications of individual clientele in each state/territory. The software used is cloud based, allowing for multiple operators across the network to work on the same data set, resulting in greater quality assurance and quality control.
