The paper addresses a road pavement diagnostics solution created as a sub-module of the S-mileSys platform developed as a part the S-mile project, implemented under the “Sustainable Logistic and Supply Chain” competition of the ERANET Transport III programme. The S-mileSys solution was conceived as a means to support transport companies and their clients in planning, organisation and delivery of freight transport related services, but also to support local authorities and road administration bodies in matters related to road infrastructure maintenance and traffic management within cities or agglomerations. In principle, as typical transfers are made in connection with freight transport, the process of continuous road pavement monitoring and assessment is performed in a manner which does not involve interference of either vehicle drivers or employees of transport companies or logistics centres. The measuring system’s operation is essentially based on identification of values of linear accelerations recorded while vehicles traverse the road network. ICT solutions are used to send characteristics describing the vehicle motion dynamics, determined by the road pavement condition, to the S-mileSys system’s server, where, based on analysis of linear acceleration signals in a three-dimensional description of space and by taking GPS positioning into consideration, the current road pavement condition is estimated.
