Monitoring and Improving Roadway Surface Conditions for Safe Driving Environment and Sustainable Infrastructure

Toward the goal of reducing collisions while maintaining the integrity and sustainability of roadways, projects in France and California have been developed to: Evaluate the effectiveness of roadway surface improvements in reducing collisions; understand and model the deterioration of skid resistance over time; explore alternative data collection methods of monitoring skid resistance within the framework of cooperative infrastructure and vehicles; and develop a real-time system of monitoring roadway surface conditions and offering alerts to drivers. Delays and budget issues have impeded collaboration and limited input from French researchers. An extensive literature review is presented.
