28 SPRING/SUMMER 2022 Will Jourdan, Director of Business Development, HeadLight A SEAMLESS SOLUTION TO DATA COLLECTION HeadLight Smartforms The Virginia Asphalt Association, in partnership with HeadLight, is proud to announce HeadLight Smartforms, the digitization of several VDOT forms related to density testing and tack coat application rates. Smartforms not only automates calculations but incorporates pictures for complete project documentation. HeadLight Smartforms allows your field technicians to complete their testing in the field through a robust technology that reduces error by automating field input and calculations. HeadLight Smartforms has built-in digital signatures for form submission compliance without messy paperwork. VDOT forms can be submitted via email from the field and your field data is stored indefinitely for easy searchability within the HeadLight browser-based portal. The HeadLight Smartforms solution performs the calculations needed to determine the final payment based on field density, optimizing compaction operations to not only ensure receiving full payment but an additional density bonus as well. Using the pictures and spatial referencing capabilities available through HeadLight Smartforms will help track long-term mix and pavement performance. Having the density information combined with asphalt mix properties and paving train set-up will improve overall quality. HeadLight Smartforms helps me to be in multiple places at once. This technology allows me to stay in the field where it matters most. I can check on different paving projects in real-time. HeadLight also minimizes computer time re-entering data where keying errors are made during calculations. HeadLight Smartforms does all of this seamlessly and automatically through easy-to-use digital forms with dynamic calculations and easy submission.
