Pavement Management

Pavement Management systems have been designed to provide information on the functional and structural condition of roads so that road owners can offer a smooth and safe ride to road users at the lowest possible cost. They also provide reliable information to decision makers about the condition of the road network for maintenance and rehabilitation planning and funding. However, the problem with PMS systems has traditionally been that they have supported reactive maintenance whereby the road is repaired by mainly standard methods after a specified amount of visible damage has occurred on the pavement.

Managing Road Tunnel Safety

Tunnel safety has received significant attention in recent years as a result of major accidents that have led to fatalities, casualties and considerable economic damage. Due to the enclosed nature of a tunnel, the occurrence of a relatively minor incident has the potential to develop into a catastrophe as well as cause significant damage to tunnel infrastructure. In this practical workshop best-practices and the effect of existing tunnel safety measures on the safety level and management of a tunnel are discussed.

Fundamentals of Road User Charging

Road pricing systems and technologies have made tremendous progress over the past decade, and today developing and implementing a local or nationwide solution presents fewer risks than was the case 10-15 years ago. Nevertheless, capital and operational expenditures remain a significant hurdle for many road agencies and toll operators. It is therefore essential for decision-makers to carefully consider the benefits of road pricing systems prior to large-scale investments.

Webinar: Management Practices for Safer Roads

Road traffic injuries claim 1.35 million lives each year with a disproportionate impact on health and development. They are the ninth leading cause of death across all age groups globally and the leading cause among young people aged between 15 and 29 years, costing governments approximately 3% of GDP and 5% in low- and middle-income countries.

Road Safety Audits: From Concept to Results

Road safety audit and inspections serve the common purpose of identifying risk factors related to road design or traffic control that may lead to crashes, or make crashes more severe. In many cases, they also assist network highway operators and city traffic departments in identifying engineering weaknesses and hazardous locations, even in the absence of robust traffic injury data.

Webinar: The Impact and trends of COVID-19 on connected, autonomous vehicles

Automotive OEMs and many mobility players have been some of the hardest hit in the automotive world due to COVID-19. This could lead to a direct long-term impact on the autonomous vehicle industry too due to the macroeconomic trends, changing consumer behaviour and regulatory developments. On one hand we see players such as Waymo, Pony.AI, Cruise suspending services and testing activities, on the other hand there are players such as Nuro that have started using its self-driving vehicles to deliver prescriptions to pharmacies. This webinar will talk about such use cases, and our analysis of how the global autonomous and connected vehicle market will evolve in the coming, post-COVID, years.

Webinar: Road Scanning Innovation: Now & Future

Road scanning tools have significantly improved in the last 20 years with the introduction of advanced technologies like Lasers, Lidars, Accelerometers, and Stereo-Vision. These instruments allowed to speed-up the measuring campaigns and to move from qualitative to quantitative evaluation. Nevertheless, the cost of road mapping is still high, limiting the updates to larger organizations and making these technologies inaccessible to small companies and municipalities. The latest development in the field of autonomous driving (AD) could bring a significant revolution in connection with the developments of vehicle to infrastructure communication (V2I). This webinar will introduce these concepts showing state-of-the-art sensors for AD and how this revolution is already making advanced mapping tools accessible to everyone.
