The main focus of the Roadscanners’ activities is structural and functional condition monitoring and analysis of roads, streets, bridges and airports.

The Roadscanners Consulting Division provides consulting services to clients for wide variety of tasks and needs related to traffic infrastructure asset management. Company is expert in making for example road condition surveys. We find the weakest sections (using non-destructive methods) of the road that can be fixed. Cost compared to fixing the whole road is significantly smaller but this repair will add the lifetime of this road. Proactive maintenance is one of the leading ideas in Roadscanners ideology how for example roads should be maintained. 

The Consulting division, throughout Roadscanners history, has provided research and development services to organizations such as national road administrations and European Union. The most important projects so far have been the ROADEX projects since 1998- with a focus on low traffic volume road condition management in cold climate areas. Other bigger international R&D projects with company participation have been the SHRP2 (Strategic Highway Research) project in the U.S.A., and, in Europe, the EU funded MaraNord project, Barents Low Volume Road Management project and recently the TRIMM project. The Consulting division also plays a critical role in brainstorming and testing the company’s software products as well as innovating new features.
