Roadroid – Smartphone Road Quality Monitoring

ROADROID´s vision is to create an international road quality standard that helps to make the road quality better and more sustainable in a global perspective. ROADROID is 1) an “app” to measure road quality, and 2) a website to view road quality. The “app” is designed for Android smart phones. You can easily measure and monitor the road quality and also use the camera for GPS-tagged photos. The app is based on several years of research for the Swedish Road Administration in cooperation with Roadroid inventor and engineers. By a login on ROADROID’s homepage, you can monitor the data and plan, implement and follow up on road maintenance. ROADROID is correlated with the international standard IRI and can provide the users with a daily picture of the road quality and be a powerful aid in operational follow-ups. It is not a substitute for advanced methods or ocular surveys – but it’s a great compliment. By being able to generate large amounts of data, Roadroid creates statistics that none of the other methods allow. ROADROID is awarded the Born Global program for globally potential ICT-companies, national nominee for the World Summit Award in Mobile Content, and is competing in “Gallileo masters”.
