BOMAG Americas Offers BOMAP Connect
BY AsphaltPro Staff
BOMAG Americas, Ridgeway, South Carolina, offers the BOMAP Connect networked control and documentation program for all rollers working at the jobsite. All compaction data collected by BOMAP Connect is cloud-based, so compaction documentation can be quickly accessed from a computer or mobile device from anywhere an internet connection is available.
An operator activates the BOMAP app from an Android tablet or smartphone from a BOMAG roller, and the app connects with the machine’s interface and registers its parameters. All compaction passes are then automatically recorded. If required by job specification, the interface can connect with BOMAG’s Joblink via Bluetooth, and in addition to roller passes, the system also records the Evib value, asphalt temperature, and vibration frequency and amplitude of the BOMAG rollers, and adds the data to the documentation.
For other roller brands in the fleet connected to the networked jobsite, BOMAP Connect logs and transmits the number of passes, generating a pass map for the entire site. By equipping the rollers with an optional high-precision antenna, GPS reception is maximized to further increase documentation accuracy.
All rolling data collected from the site are combined in real time in the cloud application and displayed as a colored map in Google Maps. The colored areas indicate where compaction has already been achieved and where it is still necessary.
BOMAP Connect enables all roller operators to achieve optimum compaction in the minimum number of passes. BOMAP Connect enhances parallel planning of different projects within BOMAP, including construction site planning. Using 3D planning data combined with online map services, the system makes it possible to specify all relevant core project parameters and to plan the construction process in detail. Project planners can input compaction specification details and the deployed rollers display these project parameters when connected.
At the push of a button, BOMAP Connect transmits the final project parameters to the mobile devices of the roller operators, foremen and site managers. Project changes can be uploaded to the program and quickly be transmitted to the field in real time.
