Port of Antwerp and the University of Antwerp develop asphalt of the future with Com&Sens innovative FBG sensing concept.


The study is the result of a collaboration with the University of Antwerp which started in 2017. In 2019, innovative sensors were already installed in the road structure in other test sections, to measure the warping of asphalt on a road with heavy traffic. Thanks to the project, these sensors have now been optimised so that the added value of the new sustainable asphalt can be effectively measured. The data from the tests should lead to the development of a fully sustainable and strong road infrastructure.
