Safer rides and walks with RAK | Road Assessment Kit

Road Assessment Kit
Innovate video mapping technology to locate sidewalk, and paved and unpaved road conditions

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Feb. 13, 2018 -- Red Hen Systems (RHS), a Coloradoan based geospatial company with more than 20 years of experience locating infrastructure with innovative video mapping technology, is launching their newest affordable, reliable, and simple to use Road Assessment Kit (RAK). RAK locates in a real-time sidewalk, and paved and unpaved road conditions, such as potholes, sidewalks, cracks, and damaged traffic signs and curbs, to name a few. RAK was designed to help the road and bridge departments of smaller counties, and engineering and surveying consulting firms with strategic maintenance planning to contribute to pedestrians and drivers safety. Watch the RAK video demo.

RAK Benefits

  • RAK is affordable. Compared to high-end solutions with prices up to $100K, RAK offers kits starting at $8K, and a rental option for people interested but not quite ready to buy. "Counties are facing a critical problem by having tight budgets for street maintenance, in some cases, they even monitor their roads manually. They still have to get the work done and ensure their communities a safer ride and walk home," said Neil Havermale, RHS founder.
  • RAK is reliable. It uses trustworthy video mapping technology including action cameras such us GoPro's or 360 video cameras, Google Earth map, Garmin GPS, SlingStudio Hub recorder, and VMS-333 multiplexor with an Android app.
  • RAK is simple to use. Set up takes less than 10 minutes, and it can be mounted on any vehicle, allowing road and sidewalk surveyors to effortlessly patrol and geotag the location of unpaved and paved road conditions using an intuitive Android app to make informed decisions to mark conditions of assets.

RHS will be showcasing RAK at the 45 Annual Rocky Mountain Asphalt Conference and Equipment Show on February 21-23, 2018 at the Crown Plaza DIA in Denver, Colorado.
