Road inspection


Intelligent automation for road inspection

Regional road authorities spend billions of euros a year on the maintenance of roads, traffic signs, street lights and bridges. The inspection is a time-consuming task requiring a great amount of human effort. Delays lead to more significant problems such as costly repairs, major traffic delays and can even cause accidents. The earlier issues are detected and more frequently they are checked, the better they can be addressed, reducing emergency repairs that shut down roads and cause traffic jams. By automating road inspection authorities will save time and money and improve public safety.
