Cover Story (view full-size image): The application of Fiber Bragg grating sensors (FBGs) in asphalt pavement structure is an advanced research method that is a long-term and real-time process applied for the monitoring and re-evaluation of pavement design for heavy-duty pavements. Two new approaches to FBGs installation in three asphalt pavement layers were implemented for the first time in Belgium: (1) the installation of FBGs in prefabricated asphalt specimens in the base layer, directly on the base, and (2) the installation of FBGs on the surface of the previously constructed asphalt layer. Both innovative approaches allow for the implementation of FBGs without sawing the whole layer into two parts. The installation of the FBG monitoring system’s prototype was a part of a project—CyPaTs, in which a bicycle path (length—96 m and width—4 m) was accomplished over 3 days at UAntwerp.
