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

The objective of this project is to integrate emerging 3D scanning laser technology, image processing algorithms, and global positioning system/geographic information system (GPS/GIS) technologies into an intelligent sensing system that improves roadway asset management. Pavement and sign assets will be used to validate the developed sensing system with a special focus on automatic detection of pavement distresses and automatic sign inventory data collection. Project development steps are to (1) Integrate a sensing system, (2) Calibrate the sensing system, (3) Test and validate the sensing system using the real-world data, (4) Quantify research benefits. This system targets asphalt highways, parking lots, and civilian and military airfield taxiways and runways. The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), the city of Nashville, South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT), Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), and Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) have participated in this project by providing direct and in-kind support for this project.
