Project Objectives

The key scientific and technical objectives of the project are:

  • Development of an innovative, highly accurate Longitudinal measurement methodology.
  • Development of an innovative, highly accurate Transversal measurement methodology.
  • Design and implementation of a low-cost, yet sophisticated, embedded system executing the pioneering Longitudinal and Transversal measurement methodologies.
  • Implementation of a pioneering complete integrated solution for road profile measurements incorporating state-of-the-art GIS techniques for accurate positioning.
  • Development of a novel information system for data logging, data extraction and data exchange with existing relevant systems.
  • Execution of numerous real-world field-trials, in different countries, of the complete systems in roads with significantly different characteristics and fine tuning the end-system depending on the underlying road characteristics.
