Exploit synergies of CPX acoustic measurements and condition recording
Through the cooperation with vialytics, new synergies can be used. For example, during the acoustic pavement measurements with our CPX system, we can simultaneously record the road condition using the vialytics system. As an official distributor of vialytics in Switzerland, we are also happy to support municipalities in the introduction of the vialytics system. Recorded vialytics results with damage classification scores from 1 to 5 can be further processed by us so that the results can also be used for the Swiss standard. Furthermore, for low-noise road surfaces, we can overlay the acoustic CPX measurement data with the vialytics road condition data and analyse them in combination. This allows us to identify potential improvements in road maintenance and to extend the service life of low-noise pavements.
How does road condition monitoring work today?
The conventional way of assessing the road condition requires an inspection of the road by an expert. This is time-consuming, expensive and the assessment varies subjectively from person to person.
How does vialytics work?
vialytics has developed an innovative solution to significantly facilitate this process of road condition recording and thereby simplify road management. With the help of a smartphone camera attached to the windscreen, images of the road surface can be taken during car journeys. During a measurement drive, pictures are automatically taken every four metres. The app uses GPS to determine the current position as well as the driving speed. After the drive, the captured images are uploaded to the vialytics cloud, where they are analysed and classified using image recognition algorithms and powerful computers. The system recognises different damage classes such as chipping, potholes, cracks and patches and evaluates them according to the German Recommendations for the Maintenance Management of Urban Roads (E-EMI-2012) in a standardised grade from 1 to 5. The results can be displayed easily and comprehensibly via a web system.
Who is vialytics for?
vialytics is intended for road owners such as the federal government, cantons, cities and municipalities to automatically record the condition of their infrastructure, plan effective measures based on current data and manage all maintenance and upkeep tasks in one place.
