IP - Infraestruturas de Portugal, within IP Inov Challenge, which aimed at posing innovation challenges to scientific and corporate communities, launched, through InoCrowd, a search of innovative solutions for the development of a Geotechnical Assets Management System.
Three complementary aspects had to integrate the required system:
• The management of embankments in the road and rail networks in a dual logic that includes, on one hand, risk management and, on the other hand, the need to optimize maintenance;
• Functional availability within GIS environment of the complete existing geotechnical information;
• The management of installed geotechnical instrumentation.
The challenge was active from March 23 until May 23 and had 34 solvers registered from which 10 presented valid solutions.
A professor from FCT Nova won the challenge and the solution is now in the implementation stage.
