The 2025 Vision from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) describes that engineers will be “relying on and leveraging real-time access to living databases, sensors, diagnostic tools, and other advanced technologies to ensure informed decisions are made” . ASCE adds: “In 2025, intelligent infrastructure (embedded sensors and real-time onboard diagnostics) have led to this transformation of rapidly advancing and adapting high-value technologies in the life of a structure. Real-time monitoring, sensing, data acquisition, storage, and modeling have greatly enhanced the prediction time leading to informed decisions”. This research studies current regulations both domestic and international promoting the inclusion of data collection and analysis for current infrastructure management, including, but not limited, efforts by both the Federal Railway Administration and the Chinese Department of Transportation.
