PMSS Project Details


Project ID:FHWA-PROJ-13-0016
Project Name: Self-Powered Wireless Sensor System for Monitoring of Pavement
Status: Programmed
Last Name:Faridazar
First Name:Fred
Office: Office of Infrastructure Research and Development
Team:Infrastructure Analysis and Construction Team
Roadmap/Focus area(s): Infrastructure Research and Technology Strategic Plan and Roadmap
Project Description:Advancing the state of practice in pavement structure health monitoring, including optimization of the field’s data collection/storage and integration of the collected data with the databases of the agencies.
Start Date: September 20, 2013
End Date: September 20, 2015
Goals:Advancing the state of practice in pavement structure health monitoring.
Test Methodology: Sensor system
Expected Benefits:Highway agencies will be able to facilitate more effective pavement maintenance and rehabilitation/preservation decision making by detecting possible damage, monitoring mechanical load history, and predicting the fatigue life of the monitored pavements. Data would be collected from the sensors by driving over them and then, with a global positioning system, the condition data could be linked to a pavement management system.
