Abstract

This paper presents a data collecting process using smartphone based accelerometer in association with geographic information systems (GIS) software to better manage pavement condition data and facilitate with decision making for maintenance and rehabilitation. The smartphone is equipped with an accelerometer (a mobile apps) could record 50 vibration data points per second in three direction (X, Y, and Z). The type of Traditional pavement survey is time-consuming and requires experienced technicians to travel along highway to visualize pavement conditions and record any failures. Combining vibration intensity data with a GIS platform can help public agencies with a strategic plan to prioritize maintenance schedules for both bike trails and highway roads. The objective of this paper is to (1) discuss the processes of vibration data analysis using a smartphone based accelerometer and to (2) demonstrate how to relate vibration intensity data to locate priority areas for immediate.
