A Remote Sensing and GIS-enabled Asset Management System (RS-GAMS) Phase 2

The objective of this project is to validate a remote-sensing and geographic information system (GIS) enabled Asset Management System (RS-GAMS) integrating emerging 3D line laser imaging, signal/image processing, and global positioning system (GPS)/GIS technologies to bring the new capabilities to roadway asset inventory, condition assessment, and management with a special focus on network-level pavement surface/pavement marking condition assessment, and efficient inventory of cross slopes, roadway curvatures, and pavement width. Project development steps are to (1) refine and calibrate the integrated sensing system, (2) test and validate the sensing system using the real-world data, and (3) quantify the research benefits. The validated technologies and system targets asphalt and concrete highways, parking lots, and civilian and military airfield taxiways and runways. The United States Department of Transportation, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Department of Transportation, Florida Department of Transportation, North Carolina Department of Transportation, South Carolina Department of Transportation, and Chatham County - Savannah Metropolitan Commission have participated in this project by providing direct and in-kind support.
