The Road Sounder project is a pioneering effort focused on developing a sophisticated smart network for automated monitoring of road pavement status.
Through the integration of sensors, data analytics, and communication technologies, the project aims to significantly enhance the Pavement Management System (PMS). Real-time data on key parameters such as cracks, surface roughness, potholes, and crags is derived using a light and compact equipment embedded with dedicated accelerometers and an Inertial Measurement Unit plus a GNSS receiver for geo-localization. This data is transferred to a centralized system for remote data mining, enabling efficient implementation of a highly effective PMS.
By empowering public administrations and road maintenance providers, the Road Sounder project contributes to the creation of safer and smoother road networks.
