The purpose of the PANOPTIS project is to improve the resiliency (ability to adapt) of the road infrastructures and ensuring reliable network availability under unfavourable conditions, such as extreme weather, landslides, and earthquakes. The project’s main goal is to combine down-scale climate change scenarios (applied to road infrastructure) with structural and geotechnical simulation tools, and with actual data from sensors (terrestrial and airborne) so as to provide the operators with an integrated tool able to support more effective management of their infrastructures at planning, maintenance and operation level.
PANOPTIS concept will result in an environment that boosts planning (Climate Change/sustainability), engineering (RI protection) and operations (traffic, emergency management and security).
The proposed approach contains three strategic levers: policy, people, and programs. Each level focuses simultaneously in two different aspects: system and infrastructure component. At the same time, there are two different periods of interest: pre-event (risk reduction) and post-event (impact reduction).
