The aim of this innovation project is to develop the Proactive Infrastructure Monitoring and Evaluation System (PRIME). This system will combine geophysical ground imaging technology and wireless telemetry to create decision-support tool for the early identification of deteriorating conditions of geotechnical assets due to their age and extreme weather conditions, providing the user with a near-real-time remote condition monitoring system.
