Cost-Effective System for Rural Roadway Traffic, Surface Conditions and Weather Conditions Monitoring

The main objective of this project is to develop and implement cost-effective monitoring system for rural roads. Specifically, this project aims to: (1) conduct applications of monitoring roads in rural areas with advanced sensing and communication technologies to monitor traffic and roadway surface and environmental conditions, analyze the collected data in real-time, communicate with traffic operations center as well as broadcast useful information to road users; and (2) establish the standards for transportation practitioners in Rural, Isolated, Tribal, or Indigenous (RITI) communities to implement such monitoring system to monitor traffic and roadway surface and environmental conditions, analyze the collected data in real-time, communicate with traffic operations center as well as broadcast useful information to road users.
