Abstract
Highways and bridges do not only have to be built, but must also be maintained to preserve their operational reliability. Concrete as well as asphalt pavements are exposed to many types of environmental impacts such as solar radiation, humidity, frost, de-icing salt, and of course traffic loads. Commonly used visual inspection methods are very time-consuming, costly, and only appropriate for local examinations. In this contribution, a mobile damage detection vehicle with mounted sensors is presented. It permits to assess the condition of road surfaces at average driving speed. For detecting damages such as cracks or potholes, sensors such as high speed video cameras and 31) laser profilers and sensors for monitoring the surface and air temperature are necessary. They are discussed in detail in the paper. For analyzing the measured data, special referencing systems have to be implemented. Additional to the mentioned components and their individual advantages, there is the demand for software elements that allow a fully automatic damage detection system. These tools, in combination with environmental data collected by meteorological stations, are used based on correlation considerations to evaluate the traffic and environmental impacts to the surface of bridge pavements.
