4. INSTRUMENTATION AND MICRO-PROCESSOR APPLICATIONS

Summary
Under this section, one project namely “Design and Fabrication of Road Condition Evaluation Equipment for A.P. Government” has been completed.
In the project entitled “Development of Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) System for Traffic Management using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Tags and Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) Technology, equipment have been procured and installed. Field trials are in progress.
Under the project “Design & Development of a System for Automated Measurement of Deflection Basin under Truck Dual Tyre Assembly”, field trials are in progress.
The fourth project “Development of Roller Mounted Nuclear Density Gauge”, in-situ soil densities have been obtained by nuclear and convectional methods. The results obtained compare very well.
SALIENT POINTS FOR DISCUSSION
1. Pavement Condition Evaluation
2. Electronic Toll Collection
3. Automated Measurement of Deflection Basin
