Carbin App Collects Valuable Road Data
As recently reported by the RMC Research & Education Foundation, the Carbin app collects valuable data that can be used to demonstrate the need to policy makers for increased infrastructure investment. It can also provide important information to state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and municipalities about the condition of their roadways, so that they understand which roadways are performing best and can appropriately direct their infrastructure dollars. Carbin has already surveyed more than 35,000 lane miles around the world and builds upon research conducted at the MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub (CSHub).
The Carbin app is available for both Apple and Android smartphones. The data collected is then used to update and populate the FIX-MY-ROAD map, which may be viewed here.
The RMC Research & Education Foundation is a co-funder of the MIT CShub along with the Portland Cement Association. For more information about the work of the foundation, please visit www.rmc-foundation.org or contact Julie Garbini or Jennifer LeFevre.
