Published 3rd May 2023 The UK’s road and active travel space networks are a vital framework connecting our communities, businesses and green spaces, supporting our economy and underpinning the prosperity of the nation. Our transport and highways engineering specialists are carrying out surface monitoring and conditions evaluations across Britain to ensure these networks continue to operate effectively. To make this process safer, greener and more efficient, we’ve been supporting the development of a ground-breaking digital condition monitoring system called DRIMS (Dynamic Response Intelligent Monitoring System). Harnessing AI and FCD (Floating Car Data), this smartphone-based road-roughness measurement device gives International Roughness Index (IRI) ratings for a given stretch of road.
