UNRA INNOVATION; the Roads Authority intends to use Digital Application for Road Condition Monitoring

Date:

By Our Reporter

In an effort to standardize data collection on the network and improve the quality of data collected, UNRA has procured Roadroid, a digital application.

Roadroid is a smartphone application for road surveys that collects roughness data on a road while the car is moving.

The app measures vibrations of the road, with the internal accelerometer of a phone and translates them into an International Roughness Index (IRI).

The application captures photos or videos with GPS coordinates during surveys. The tool allows roughness to be collected seamlessly and accurately by simply mounting the phone in a moving vehicle. Data collected is stored in the cloud system and accessed anywhere and anytime.

A team from UNRA’s Directorate of Network Planning and Engineering (DNPE) and the Directorate of Road Maintenance (DRM) is undergoing training in the use of the application. From this, UNRA will have the full knowledge and capacity to effectively monitor the roughness of its road network and provide data-based information to help allocate resources efficiently across the network.
