Road Condition Measurement and Assessment: A Crowd Based Sensing Approach

  title={Road Condition Measurement and Assessment: A Crowd Based Sensing Approach},
  author={Kevin Laubis and Viliam Simko and Alexander Schuller},
The widespread adoption of smart devices and vehicle sensors has the potential for an unprecedented real time assessment of road conditions. The international roughness index (IRI) is an important road profile quality indicator well suited for a crowd based sensing approach. One of the challenges, however, is the heterogeneous nature of sensor measurements from multiple cars that need to be integrated. In this paper, we propose a self-calibration approach that utilizes multiple… Expand
Road Condition Estimation Based on Heterogeneous Extended Floating Car Data
It is shown that reducing the amount of data sent to the backend system for training purposes does not reduce the models’ performance and the approach can handle sensing frequencies up to 25 Hz without a performance reduction compared to the baseline scenario with 50 Hz. Expand
Road Roughness Crowd-Sensing with Smartphone Apps
This paper presents the outline of an integrated road roughness monitoring system and illustrates its proper functioning with data collected from a large community and offers a key tool to help decision makers in charge of public road networks. Expand
Crowdsensing-Based Road Condition Monitoring Service: An Assessment of Its Managerial Implications to Road Authorities
Results show that substituting laser-based road condition inspections by a crowdsensing-based monitoring service can decrease total costs by 5.9 % while an approach, which combines both monitoring approaches, reduces the costs by 6.98 %. Expand
A Study on the Influence of Speed on Road Roughness Sensing: The SmartRoadSense Case †
This paper studies how the smartphone vertical accelerations and the roughness index are related to the vehicle speed and shows that the dependence can be locally approximated with a gamma (power) law. Expand
Enabling crowdsensing-based road condition monitoring service by intermediary
This work develops a smart, crowd-based road condition monitoring service that establishes an intermediary between the crowd as data provider and the road authorities and road users as service customers and proves the feasibility and usability of this smart service. Expand
Response-based methods to measure road surface irregularity: a state-of-the-art review
The results show that machine-learning techniques/data-driven methods have been used intensively with promising results but the disadvantages on data dependence have limited its application in some instances as compared to analytical/data processing methods. Expand
Mobile crowdsensing for road sustainability: exploitability of publicly-sourced data
ABSTRACT This paper examines the opportunities and the economic benefits of exploiting publicly-sourced datasets of road surface quality. Crowdsourcing and crowdsensing initiatives channel theExpand
Pavement Roughness Evaluation with Smartphones
Researchers have linked pavements roughness to acceleration signals derived from smartphones, due to its low cost, simple handling and high productivity. It would facilitate a continuous dataExpand
Roads Detection and Parametrization in Integrated BIM-GIS Using LiDAR
This paper illustrates a two-step procedure in which roads are automatically detected and classified, providing GIS layers with basic road geometry that are turned into parametric BIM objects in an integrated BIM-GIS with a structure based on multiple proposals. Expand
Intelligent Road Maintenance: a Machine Learning Approach for surface Defect Detection
This paper proposes a machine learning based approach to handle the challenge of crack and related defect detection on road surfaces using frontview images captured from driver’s viewpoint under diverse conditions, using a superpixel based method. Expand
