Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is widely used in the field of civil engineering, as a non-intrusive technique for road and pavement monitoring. This work presents an innovative application for mobile platforms (smartphones and tablets) for real-time GPR data processing. Our work aims at providing a useful support for engineers and technicians as well, for road and pavement inspection. According to the presented results, this application can play an important role for all the agencies involved in roads and highway management. In particular, our application will provide strategic and innovative potentialities, by improving the on-site efficiency and effectiveness of the works.
