The purpose of the PANOPTIS project is to improve the resiliency (ability to adapt) of the road infrastructures and ensuring reliable network availability under unfavourable conditions, such as extreme weather, landslides, and earthquakes. The project’s main goal is to combine down-scale climate change scenarios (applied to road infrastructure) with structural and geotechnical simulation tools, and with actual data from sensors (terrestrial and airborne) so as to provide the operators with an integrated tool able to support more effective management of their infrastructures at planning, maintenance and operation level.
The following technologies will be implemented in the PANOPTIS tool:
-Reliable quantification of climatic, hydrological and atmospheric stressors
-Multi-Hazard vulnerability modules and assessment toolkit
-Development of a forecasting module to provide high-resolution tailored weather and precipitation forecasts
-Improved prediction of structural and geotechnical safety risk through the use of Geotechnical and Structural Simulation Tool (SGSA)
-Improved multi-temporal, multi-sensor observations with robust spectral analysis, computer vision and Machine Learning (ML) damage diagnostic for diverse Road Infrastructures (RI).
-Detailed and wide area transport asset mapping, integrating state-of-the-art mobile mapping and making use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) technology
-Design of a Holistic Resilience Assessment Platform (HRAP)
-Design of a Common Operational Picture (COP) including a Decision Support System (DSS), an enhanced visualization interface and an Incident Management System (IMS)
The PANOPTIS integrated platform (and its sub-modules) will be implemented in two motorway sections in the Greek and Spanish primary road network.
