Smart Pavement Monitoring System

The proposed study consists of two parts: Part 1 focus is to develop a sensor system embedded in pavement capable of continuously monitoring the physical properties of asphalt and/or concrete pavements, at early age as well as long term. Part 2 work includes conducting field trials by taking into consideration: Determine how many of these sensing devices must be installed with a given volume/area or per 1 km of pavement for reliability; Determine the optimal location for the device; Assess the ability of the sensor system to function correctly under the heavy traffic and environments in which the devices have to operate and the possible effect of the environment on the performance of the sensor system (moisture, steel corrosion, alkali, temperature, etc); determine the length of time the sensor system will deliver data; asses to ascertain the reliability and consistency over time of the information obtained from the embedded devices; and refine the sensor system based on field evaluation.
