The customer uses a Prosig P8004 connected to a custom triaxial accelerometer to study tarmac surfaces. As a car moves over a road it causes a ripple in the road surface. DATS is used to derive displacement from the measured accelerations. The results are used to study different types of surface and changes due to humidity and temperature. The goal is to find a surface that does not flex and break, but is not too rigid.
