Monitoring the road pavement is a challenging task. Authorities spend time and finances to monitor the state and quality of the road pavement. This paper investigate road surface monitoring with smartphones equipped with GPS and inertial sensors: accelerometer and gyroscope.
In this study we describe the conducted experiments with data from the time domain, frequency domain and wavelet transformation, and a method to reduce the effects of speed, slopes and drifts from sensor signals. A new audiovisual data labelling technique is proposed. Our system named RoADS, implements wavelet decomposition analysis for signal processing of inertial sensor signals and Support Vector Machine (SVM) for anomaly detection and classification. Using these methods we are able to build a real time multiclass road anomaly detector. We obtained a consistent accuracy of ≈90% on detecting severe anomalies regardless of vehicle type and road location. Local road authorities and communities can benefit from this system to evaluate the state of their road network pavement in real time.
