Future highway systems target better use of digital innovation

UK Roads Liaison Group member and chair of industry association ADEPT’s engineering board Parvis Khansari writes about a recently published report looking at digital innovation and highways.

ADEPT report on Digital Innovation

Special projects carried out by the World Road Association

Two special projects are due to be published soon by the World Road Association, providing unique perspectives on topics of widespread interest.

The first covers unexpected infrastructure failure and the second is on the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones for managing transport infrastructure.

The UK National Committee of the World Road Association (WRA UK) gave an insight into these projects at the Highways UK event in November.
