Improving the Quality of Highway Profile Measurement

The pooled fund study will enable participants to identify and resolve operational issues common among devices used to measure pavement profiles. The study will focus on data quality issues that arise from the use and operation of inertial profilers and other systems designed to measure pavement profile. The objectives of this project are to: (1) deliver sample procurement specification, maintenance guidelines; (2) direct and support development and maintenance of pavement profile analysis software: (3) establish criteria for profile verification and assist with development of validation sites; (4) develop and deploy pavement profile reference device(s) and a traceable verification process; and (5) provide technical support for the Road Profile Users' Group and conduct annual face-to-face meetings in conjunction with the group.
