27 March 2018 In-pavement fiber Bragg grating sensor for vehicle speed and wheelbase estimation
Author Affiliations +
The Department of Transportation classifies a vehicle depending on the number of axles and the space between them (wheelbase). Vehicle classification accuracy depends on the accuracy in estimating the speed and the wheelbase. In this study, a three-dimension Glass Fiber-Reinforced Polymer packaged Fiber Bragg Grating sensor (3D GFRP-FBG) is introduced for vehicle speed and wheelbase estimation. The experimental results show the ability of the sensor to estimate the speed and the wheelbase of a reference vehicle, with an accuracy of 95% or higher.
