Building Smarter Cities via Intelligent Asset Management: South Carolina Case Study using IBM Maximo Application

Description: Bridges serve as vital hubs in the national economy, facilitating the movement of goods and vehicles. South Carolina has nearly 9,455 bridges, and 8.7 percent are currently classified as structurally deficient [ARTBA, 2021]. A total of 89.4 percent of structurally deficient bridges are located on interstate highways and other critical roadways that connect major airports, ports, railroads, and truck terminals [ARTBA, 2021], posing a threat to the transportation of people and goods. Intellectual Merit: The research goal is to develop a cost-effective approach to monitor the road conditions by cloud-based collaborative monitoring using in-vehicle smartphones which could be from any general public vehicle users. Broader Impacts: This project aims to reduce the cost of road condition monitoring by providing a very cost-effective way with a minimum investment of equipment and labor, significantly improve the safety of transportation systems, especially the multimodal connected and automated transportation systems, by providing timely needed road condition monitoring, and create a smartphone-based road condition dataset to benefit the research society.
