Sujon worked on a research project under the supervision of Fei Dai, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at WVU. Sujon's research aim was to develop a low-cost virtual weigh-in-motion technology that utilized traffic data to meticulously evaluate present road conditions and could make predictions of the future condition of the pavement.
Sujon believes his research will facilitate the United States Department of Transportation to employ their collected big data for developing a sustainable transportation infrastructure management system and SOY award is a recognition of his hard work.
This research can effectively help to improve society by developing techniques that can bring sustainability to the management system and finally obtain a sustainable transportation infrastructure system.
