Are you aware of the state of the bike paths in your area? How old is your last inspection of the bike paths, and could you benefit from getting them checked more often? Budgets for maintaining bike paths are often limited, so why not use the funds where most will benefit?
If you order a comfort measurement of your bike paths, we will ride a bike on them and you will get measurements and reports that tell you what the conditions of the bike paths are. We measure the condition of the bike paths with accelerometers coupled with a GPS device, so you can see exactly where the largest fluctuations, and thus the biggest holes, are. It's all assembled in a camera that also films the asphalt and therefore gives you the best overview of the measurements.
We carry out the comfort measurements in the following steps:
The screenshot to the right shows how data are presented in HOTS (version 1.1.0). The stretch is divided into 10 metre pieces (the size is adjustable), and each stretch is coloured. Colours indicate the quality measured: green is for surfaces with little or no bad spots, yellow is for surfaces with a few spots, and red is for surfaces with bad quality. When clicking a piece of stretch the actual measure of that stretch is shown in a graph together with video footage from that stretch. This allows you to see the bumps or potholes that were actually measured.
With measurements and videos, you get an overview of the areas to address. You could also consider to:
