According to the American Society of Civil Engineering’s 2013 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure more than 1.3 million miles of US roads are in poor or mediocre conditions, costing motorists $67B a year, or $324 per motorist, in additional repairs and operating costs. In addition America’s major urban highways are costing the economy a staggering amount of 101 billion dollars in wasted time and fuel annually due to congestion. Cities allocate their limited maintenance budgets based on outdated pavement condition surveys, which are too costly and time-consuming for frequent city-wide updates. They mainly rely on surface observations subject to the inspector and are sometimes intrusive to the traveling public. The current inspection methodology is clearly not doing its part in eliminating the chronic problem of aging roadways.
StreetScan provides a pavement inspection service that is fast and affordable to be used city-wide on a frequent basis, ensuring that repair decisions are never based on outdated or incomplete data. Our innovative and patented vehicle-mounted sensing technology (acoustic, radar, optical) removes human bias and allows surface and subsurface assessments in normal traffic flow. Within days StreetScan delivers a pavement condition map through our PAVEment MONitoring System PAVEMON, a web application that provides data and management tools empowering cities to do more within their budget. This enables frequent health monitoring of roads without traffic blockage and contributes to raising the average road conditions in every town, city and state. Our PAVEment MANaging toolbox PAVEMAN assists decision makers formulating strategies for providing, maintaining, and improving their road network.
