Implementation of advanced monitoring techniques in road asset management: results from the TRIMM project

TRIMM (Tomorrow’s Road Infrastructure Monitoring and Management) is an FP7 project focussed on not yet implemented advanced monitoring techniques, which can provide crucial information to complement existing data for road management. TRIMM covers bridge, pavement and road equipment monitoring techniques. Emphasis is given to how monitoring data can be implemented in asset management systems through indicators. Advances in a range of sensing technologies and information processing now offer a potential for improving practices regarding for example cost efficiency, time and spatial coverage, extent of traffic disruptions, indicator reliability, interpretation of physical processes, reflection of needs regarding functionality and safety, versatility and multi-purpose usage. Finally, this paper present result from the first half of the TRIMM project regarding assessment of added value of monitoring and implementation to optimise benefits provided by monitoring.
