Research

Research reports contracted by the Slovak Road Administration (Slovenská správa ciest).

2020: Strategic reporting at the pavement network level, part II

In Slovak: Strategický reporting vozoviek na úrovni cestnej siete, II. časť

This research project is a continuation of the research project of the same name in 2019.

This part thoroughly analyses suitable models of social indicators suitable for constructing KPI’s at the network level, in particular for vehicle operating costs, travel times and emissions.

The technical design of the national KPI system is presented here, too.

The research is now complete and the final report in Slovak language available.

2019: Strategic reporting at the pavement network level

In Slovak: Strategický reporting vozoviek na úrovni cestnej siete

The goal of the research project is to propose a new strategic reporting system and performance measurement system as a set of key performance indicators (KPI) as an integral part of the pavement and road management system in the Slovak Republic.

The research is now complete and the final report in Slovak language available.

2019: Pavement deterioration modeling and planning algorithms at the network level

In Slovak: Algoritmizácia plánov a modelovanie vývoja stavu vozoviek na úrovni cestnej siete

The goal of the research project is to:

  1. analyze and describe methods for mathematical modeling of pavement deterioration process; including deterministic and probabilistic models,
  2. analyze and describe common algorithms for pavement network level programming.

The research is now complete and the final report in Slovak language available.

2018: Pavement surface distress identification using the LineScan device

The Slovak Road Administration has a measurement system with a linescan camera for capturing sharp pictures of the pavement surface.

The goal of the reseach project was to explore possibilities for automatic or semi-automatic pavement distress extraction from the picture recording, in particular information on cracks and potholes.

We described some common possibilities and settled on developing a proof of concept artificial intelligence imaging system to cope with this problem.

The research is now complete and the final report in Slovak language available.
