Advanced vehicle integrated systems can be rented with an SSI vehicle. A portion for the rental cost can be extended as a discounts toward system purchases.


SSI’s guarantees certification under local standards. Our inertial profiling systems can pinpoint localized roughness (bumps and dips) with unrivaled precision. Running different brands of profilers over a test surface using artificial bumps placed at random locations has proven the superior ability of the SSI system to reproduce the exact length and height of bumps and dips. SSI’s higher precision profile data facilitates new and useful solutions—from real time navigation along pavement profiles to pin-point the edges of mark localized roughness—to enabling operators of grinders and mills to adjust their machines according changes in surface profiler. Contact SSI for more details on these innovative solutions.

SSI offers custom hardware and software development services. Whether an expansion of the capabilities of an existing SSI device or development of new solutions, we extend SSI’s experience to push technology advancements.

Through all of our contacts and industry experience we can give the expert advice needed to achieve your goals. We are constantly upgrading our fleet and software. Please submit a Feedback request through our SSI Profiler software and a programming engineer will begin meeting your request.
