FleetWatcher Partners with OnStation to Pinpoint Location of Each Asphalt Load

Screen Shot 2022-09-27 at 10.08.24 AM

Earthwave has integrated their e-ticketing functionality with OnStation to allow users to pinpoint the exact Station Location where each load of asphalt is placed on a jobsite. This new functionality automatically tracks the load from the time it is loaded at the asphalt plant, through its dumping into the paver on the jobsite. The exact Station location becomes a part of the digital e-ticket, with no operator intervention required. Operators and transportation agency officials can know precisely on a jobsite where a specific load of asphalt was laid, so that if a future problem arises, they can investigate other parameters around that location, including core tests, density, drainage, or others, to determine the scope of the problem. Specific station locations on each e-ticket replace the latitude/longitude indications which are commonly included now, but which are not readily referenceable on the jobsite.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Pilots E-Ticketing Solution

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet used Fleetwatcher's E-Ticketing solution on two research projects during the 2018 paving season in an effort to investigate the effectiveness of the electronic ticketing process in combination with both intelligent compaction and infrared temperature monitoring.  The two projects were KYTC's initial attempts to begin developing a system wherein the majority of material monitoring is done electronically, allowing a KYTC inspector to focus on a more visual inspection of the material being placed.
