Mandli is able to collect and process a wide range of pavement data. Transverse profile indexes convey the condition of a road at a specific station and the road characteristics that can be measured from a transverse profile increase with the number of points in the profile. Road conditions, such as the bump in between dual tire ruts or the width of a PCC fault, manifest themselves on the scale of 1″ and smaller. Several transverse profile classifications exist for analyzing rutting, a condition which affects aging AC roads to varying degrees. Each index indicates a different feature of the transverse profile, and many correspond to road wear and decay. A goal of continuous research in this area has been to correlate these indicators to maintenance and replacement schedules. Indicators like International Ride Index and Ride Number (IRI and RN) attempt to quantify the ride quality of roads.
