REPARA 2.0

Technologies and methodologies that support infrastructure management and allow the rehabilitation and conservation of any type of road

Description

REPARA 2.0 aims to develop new technologies and methodologies that support infrastructure management and allow the rehabilitation and conservation of any type of road at a lower economic and environmental cost.

In REPARA 2.0, new recycled bituminous mixtures will be developed at rates of up to 100%, which are more sustainable and resilient, which mechanical performance is similar to hot mixes. This will be a world novelty.

Within the framework of the REPARA 2.0 project, technologies will be developed for new autonomous and wireless sensors, capable of recharging wirelessly, and transmitting, in real time, the state in which the pavement is in order to know what the moment is when preventive maintenance should be done.

Objectives

  • Get new recycled bituminous mixtures.
  • Analyze the impact of climate change on road infrastructure.
  • Obtain new information acquisition systems based on IoT and BigData.
  • Develop new sensor architectures for wireless power and communication sensors.
  • Develop ACV and ACCV software for road rehabilitation projects.
  • Obtain new recycled bituminous mixtures at rates of up to 100%.
  • Achieve a methodology and design tools for the rehabilitation techniques developed.

Actions

  • Development of new techniques for sustainable pavement rehabilitation.
  • Resilience to climate change.
  • Development of advanced instrumentation systems for monitoring the state of the pavement.
  • Life cycle analysis.
  • Development of regulations and pavements sizing software.

Expected results

  • New advanced sensor systems in extreme road conditions.
  • New BigData system for the processing of information on road conditions.
  • Pavement deterioration model.
  • Technology for wireless electric charging of sensors embedded in pavement.
  • Technology for wireless communications of sensors embedded in pavement.
