The road to sensor-driven cloud-based infrastructure management
Paper i proceeding, 2018

Today, the accelerated degradation of many concrete structures poses a major challenge for the proper maintenance of the transport infrastructure. Therefore, inspection and maintenance operations constitute an important part of the recurrent costs of infrastructure. Furthermore, the increasing migration of population to urban areas has made sustainable development an imperative need. This need has become a driving force for innovation and new challenges such as the concept of smart cities and infrastructure. The successful utilization of newly available technologies will enable a whole new range of possibilities such as sensor driven cloud-based strategies for infrastructure management, which will promote an upgrade of the current infrastructure network to a new generation of safer, more efficient and more sustainable smart infrastructure: the infrastructure 2.0. The aim of this paper is to review the state-of-the-art of the different key technologies comprising a smart monitoring system, focusing on the aspects that are required to ensure a successful implementation of such system. The main result of the study is a scientific roadmap that can serve as a guide for traffic administrations and academic institutions in their task to develop and create a new infrastructure management strategy based on emerging technologies and innovative processes.
