Develop Cost-effective Road Condition Detection Algorithm for Off-road Trucks

The goal of this project is to develop a more advanced cost-effective algorithm that can detect the road condition. The pressures signal from the pressure transducers installed on the struts of the off-road trucks are acquired and analyzed. The relationship between the road condition and pressure changes will be studied and researched. Based on the study and research, a road condition monitoring data model can be developed, and bad road condition event concept can be developed and defined. The data model can be implemented in a real-time mobile controller. Implementation of the data model (algorithm) can report an event of bad road condition. The bad road condition event can be sent to management control center via a wireless communication. Mining management team can dispatch maintenance equipment to repair the section of the bad road on time
