Earthwave Technologies Integrates E-Ticketing with OnStation
Earthwave Technologies, Indianapolis, has integrated its e-ticketing functionality with OnStation to allow users to pinpoint the exact station location where each load of asphalt is placed on a job site. This new functionality automatically tracks the load from the time it is loaded at the asphalt plant, through its dumping into the paver on the job site. The exact station location becomes a part of the digital e-ticket, with no operator intervention required. Operators and transportation agency officials can know precisely on a job site where a specific load of asphalt was laid, so that if a future problem arises, they can investigate other parameters around that location, including core tests, density, drainage or others, to determine the scope of the problem. Specific station locations on each e-ticket replace the latitude/longitude indications which are commonly included now, but which are not readily referenceable on the job site.
This versatile functionality is also applicable for loads of aggregate or other materials commonly used on road construction job sites. Because it is automatically added to the e-ticket, the information is readily available to DOT and construction crew personnel, whether they reference it in a week or a year.
When a FleetWatcher equipped truck enters a jobsite geozone, the vehicle’s latitude/longitude is sent to OnStation. After verifying that it is part of the project, OnStation returns the station, alignment and offset where the load is deposited, which then becomes part of the e-ticket. The e-ticket then flows normally though to the DOT and construction crew personnel. The process occurs automatically and replaces manual tracking systems. Additionally, this stationing information about each load is maintained in Fleetwatcher indefinitely for future use.
