Although a relatively new phenomenon, the arrival of massive, often real-time, datasets supported by widespread portable sensing devices, presents opportunities and challenges for road agencies everywhere. One of the most promising use cases of road-related “big data” generation & usage concerns the automated identification of pavement distresses in support of local maintenance decisions as well as wider policy considerations. This panel will recall the high-level stakes of introducing large data sets for road monitoring before presenting enabling technologies and their associated use cases.
