Development of Automated Roadway Lighting Diagnosis Tools for Nighttime Traffic Safety Improvement

Roadway lighting is a basic roadway infrastructure to ensure nighttime safety and security for all road users (motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and transit passengers). To cost-effectively maintain a roadway lighting system, key tasks in infrastructure management include periodically measuring roadway lighting levels, diagnosing lighting performance based on collected data, and providing decision-making support for maintenance and […]

Investigation, Testing, and Development of an RFID System for Effective Maintenance of the Existing National Transportation Infrastructure

The focus of this project is the investigation, testing and further development of a RFID system to efficiently maintain the existing transportation infrastructure; especially Roadways and Bridges. For Example, in the event of an active snowfall or blizzard, snow may pile up and ice over on the roadway and bridges causing hazardous conditions for cars […]

Multi-Criteria Decision-making Approach for Building Resilient and Sustainable Transportation Infrastructure

This project will develop and validate a multi-criteria decision-making approach for enhancing the longevity of transportation infrastructure built on problematic test site conditions that includes poor subsoil conditions. In the United States, the annual cost of damage to constructed facilities built on problematic subsoil conditions was approximately $13 billion, and a significant portion of this […]

Evaluation of Pavement Performance Using Remote Sensing Techniques

Annually, transportation agencies spend several millions of dollars of expenditures for their rehabilitation works due to the problematic soils underneath the infrastructure assets. The soils in Dallas-Fort Worth region have high tendency to undergo swell-shrink behavior that contributes to the premature failure of pavements. The proposed research focused on conducting the laboratory tests on the […]

Fast Reference‐free Crack Measurement (RACM) System in Transportation Infrastructures using Noncontact Ultrasound

The research objectives of this project are the maintenance of transportation infrastructure: i) to develop and improve the reference-free crack measurement (RACM) hardware system for field applications, ii) to develop a post-processing diagnostic framework, iii) to develop monitoring system based on internet of things. In the research category, the reference-free crack measurement system is an […]
