Track edges to ensure perfect lane overlap
Improve the quality of longitudinal joints with the MatTracker™.
The weakest part of an asphalt road is found in the longitudinal joint. Having a correct overlap in the joint match is key for a good joint compaction and a long lasting road.
MatTracker™ follows the edge of an existing lane of paved asphalt and automates the paver’s side plate movement to secure a consistent and proper overlap of material. Using computer vision technology to track the lane edge, MatTracker™ is able to deliver higher precision in the width of the overlap for an improved density of the joint.
Automating this important process will free the hands and eyes of the operator to focus and improve on other key paving processes.
How it works
MatTracker™ uses a NIR-camera and advanced image processing algorithms to identify the edge of an existing paved lane.
Based on the overlap defined by the operator, MatTracker™ automatically adjusts the side plate to maintain a consistent overlap.
With a simple and intuitive interface the desired overlap can be easily adjusted, and the movement of the side plate can be monitored during operation via the integrated LED panel.

Mini-Line® Grade & Slope Control System
Automatically control mat thickness with millimeter precision. Obtain perfect joint match with zero effort and remove waves in the finished mat resulting from manual overcompensation.
Eliminate joint failures by heating up the joint with a Joint Heater. By heating the joint you ensure a tight weld of the fresh and previously paved asphalt mat. Result? Seamless high-density joints that last.
Keep control of key parameters of your asphalt paving job with the MatManager™ for total paving quality management. Monitor material use throughout the job with realtime measurements to eliminate material overruns, and document load temperature to prevent mat segregation.
