Sensing solutions for assessing and monitoring roads

M.L. Wang and R. Birken,    Northeastern University, USA

Abstract:

The United States faces a monumental infrastructure management problem in the scheduling and implementation of maintenance and repair operations, and in the prioritization of expenditures within budgetary constraints. The efficient and effective performance of these operations is crucial to ensuring roadway safety, preventing catastrophic failures and promoting economic growth. Several viable inspection techniques are discussed focusing on current methods as well as futuristic sensing methods that will speed up the assessment process without closing traffic, and are likely tools for network-wide roadway monitoring systems. ...
