Towards road surface monitoring: experiments and technical challenges
2009 (English)In: 2009 IEEE control applications (CCA) & intelligent control (ISIC): St. Petersburg, Russia, 8 - 10 July 2009 ; [18th IEEE International Conference on Control Applications (CCA) and 24th IEEE International Symposium on Intelligent Control (ISIC) ; part of the 3rd IEEE Multi-Conference on Systems and Control (MSC 2009)], Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Communications Society, 2009, 655-659 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper discusses results from real-life tests with intelligent road marking units (RMU), placed on the surface of a highway in northern Sweden, to monitor passing vehicles and road properties, as well as making the information available through a wireless sensor network. Wireless sensor networks are starting to gain interest in the area of cooperative safety and efficiency in transport as they can contribute to the reduction of accidents and emissions as well as enhanced driver experiences. Intelligent road markings are another key element for the creation of intelligent transport systems, complementing road side units, devices placed near a road equipped with high-performance computational platforms and long range communication capabilities. This paper shows that RMUs are feasible from the perspectives of low-power consumption, durability, and sensing performance.
