Keeping track of roadway pavement maintenance and repair needs is a costly, labor-intensive process for local and state agencies.
The North Florida TPO and Clay County conducted a pilot using RoadBotics mobile apps which turn a smartphone into an intelligent data collection device. The smart phone is mounted on county trucks and used to take pictures of the pavement. The imagery is collected, uploaded and then fed through artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that provide objective, actionable data. These resources are mapped on an interactive platform to plan for maintenance and construction. Over time, communities will be able to predict where potholes and other pavement problems will occur. The Clay County pilot was so successful that Nassau County, City of St. Augustine, City of Neptune Beach, and City of Keystone Heights have adopted this technology into their road management plans.
The data collected will be shared in the Data Exchange. Using technology to provide more cost-effective and predictive pavement management makes government better at the basics and give you a smoother, safer ride.
