VOTERS Annual NIST Site Visit

April 22, 2014

The culminating site visit and technology showcase for the VOTERS (Versatile Onboard Traffic Embedded Roaming Sensors) Center took place on March 6, 2014 in the Raytheon Amphitheater. The center participants, led by COE Distinguished Professor Ming Wang, highlighted the results from their years of effort as part of this center funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The VOTERS center successfully developed a framework for continuous network-wide roadway infrastructure monitoring. A roaming multi-modal multi-sensor prototype system collects inspection data in normal traffic flow. The innovations from this center provide a simple, accurate, affordable, up-to-date, and sustainable way to detect surface and subsurface trouble spots without setting up hazardous and expensive work zones. A fully commercialized system solution provides an economical advantage for transportation infrastructure management through using the frequently-acquired VOTERS inspection data. Congratulations to Prof. Ming Wang and the VOTERS team for their work in this successful center.
