The GSI, operating as paver-mounted, work bridge-mounted has the ability to monitor and report your smoothness readings to you instantly. It's the ultimate quality-assurance tool available on the market today.
The GSI machine follows a GOMACO GP-4000 paver, right behind the finishers, on the Central Texas Turnpike.
The paver-mounted GSI was a powerful diagnostic tool as a contractor worked in Alabama to fine-tune their paving process for a challenging rideability specification.
Two paver-mounted GOMACO GSI units monitor the smoothness in each driving lane. The information is instantly displayed and reviewed on a single touch screen mounted on the side of the paver.
The GSI took part in the Federal Highway Administration's "Profiler Round-Up" study. Sixty-eight road profilers were compared and verified on two different test tracks, one in Blacksburg, Virginia, and the other in Newville, Pennsylvania.
Two paver-mounted GSI units were instrumental in helping fine tune this unbonded, 11 inch (279 mm) thick concrete overlay paving operation in Alabama.

Both sonic and slope sensors mounted to the GSI's frame take readings simultaneously to determine pavement smoothness.
On this project the GSI is mounted to a GOMACO Spanit® Work Bridge. The Work Bridge is attached to the back of a GOMACO GHP-2800 slipform paver. The GSI measures the smoothness results on this highway paving project.
Four GOMACO GSI units are mounted to the back of the paver. This provides immediate monitoring to assure proper paver setup and performance or examine for corrective measures that need to be taken.
This GSI traces four wheel tracks, providing accurate data for the smoothness readings on this two-lane street.
Here, the GSI is mounted to the back of a GP-2600 and in the center of the paver. The monitor can be mounted anywhere on the paver for easy viewing.
The rideability of this concrete roadway in Austin, Texas, is constantly being monitored by the GSI.
