Introduction

The New Taipei City Government (NTPC) of Taiwan has continually expanded the digitalization of its road management systems, beginning from establishing GIS databases from underground pipeline, facilities, pavement investigations, etc., to developing its road related management systems since 2001. However, the current decentralized data and applications are facing challenges in meeting the increasing modern road management demands. NTPC upgrades and consolidates its existing systems into an “Intelligent Road Management System,” named iRoad.

 

Features

iRoad system is comprised of five major functions, as briefly described below:

 

(1)    Road Excavation Management: Road excavation management system will include management of road excavation applications, current roadworks, inspections, project closeout, fines, public utility database management, and training. 

 

(2)    Pavement Maintenance Management: Management of road maintenance processes including road roughness and reporting management, road inspection, road issues and mitigations, pavement maintenance scheduling, etc.

 

(3)    Common Utility Duct Management: Incorporate Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies to enhance facility management capabilities and assist common utility duct inspection processes. 

 

(4)    Roadworks Query: Integrate the previously mentioned functions and systems into an accessible query system to allow the public and relevant authorities to easily query and obtain relevant information. 

(5)    Mobile Office: Combine mobile devices and communications networks to allow relevant authorities to easily access and manage necessary information while on-site or from remote locations. These may include construction, utilities, or facility data such as location and relevant attributes, improving overall efficiency.
