This interim report provides a summary of work performed on Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Research Project 0-6004 during the first year of the project. The project was initiated to develop a single path, easy to use, portable profiler. The desired profiler module is being designed to provide TxDOT a unit that can easily be mounted or removed from the front or rear bumper of typical TxDOT vehicles for measurements. The Profile generated is to be compatible with existing TxDOT formats. The project is being conducted by Dr. Roger Walker of the University of Texas at Arlington and Dr. Emmanuel Fernando of the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A&M University who began work in September 2008 in accordance with the project proposal.
