In order to address risk, it is important to have up-to-date information on the state of a road network, including both road and roadside elements. Accurate collection of this information can be time consuming, and the task often involves subjective assessment of risk. This paper explores current technologies that are available for the automatic collection and processing of safety related road and roadside data as well as highlighting the results from a trial to collect information on roadside hazards.
