Since most of our public infrastructures such as roads were constructed during the period of high economic growth, it is expected that the structures will rapidly deteriorate and that large-scale renewal and repair projects will increase. Therefore, in addition to improving asset management technologies, including condition assessment as well as risk estimation and evaluation of bridges, pavements and other road structures, we would like to consider the implementation methods in the field.
