VAA Virginia Asphalt Spring/Summer 2022

VAASPHALT.ORG 29 A SEAMLESS SOLUTION TO DATA COLLECTION Besides collecting and reporting the information required by specification, through HeadLight Smartforms VAA members will be able to evaluate the compactability of their mixes, the interaction of various paving and compaction equipment combinations on final density, and road condition impacts on density, just to name a few scenarios. Over time the learnings from your nuclear density data will enable you to improve your results by understanding the factors that stand in the way of success. Ultimately, the investment in HeadLight Smartforms fits into the association’s mission to increase the quality of asphalt pavement. HeadLight Smartforms runs on the same technology platform as HeadLight Fieldbook, a visual-based inspection technology that leverages the power of photo, video and narrative observations to build a complete picture of a project. Immediate access to data improves communications between field and office teams and gives a fact-based, data-driven representation of what’s happening on a project to all stakeholders, increasing efficiency and reducing project risk. HeadLight products are iOS-based apps that work on Apple devices, where the iPad is the preferred type of device. HeadLight leases iPads so let us know if you are interested in that program option. Each user needs a license and associated login credentials to sign in to the app. Only one user can be logged into a device at any given time. Users can share a device but not at the same time so you could use one device for day and night shift. Internet access or cellular connectivity is required for Smartforms but is not required for Fieldbook functionality, as data captured in Fieldbook is stored locally and can sync when back in a connected environment.
