To further enhance the capabilities of the Pave-IR thermal segregation detection system developed at the Texas Transportation Institute, researchers incorporated global positioning system (GPS) data collection into the thermal profiles. This GPS capability enhances operation by allowing easier identification of the limits of the thermal profile and by more easily and precisely identifying the location of anomalous temperatures for long-term monitoring. Three existing Pave-IR test systems were retrofitted to include GPS capability.
