RoadBotics

Meeting of the Minds Sponsor

RoadBotics monitors and manages our world’s roadways by identifying and rating a wide array of important roadway features and conditions, including cracks, potholes, signage, vegetation, debris and other characteristics.

Our AI technology was developed at the Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute with the explicit goal of providing efficient and cost effective roadway transparency to those responsible for roadway infrastructure. Our smartphone app turns a smartphone and car, truck or bike into a sophisticated, mobile sensor. With this app, drivers simply attach their phone to a dash mount, giving the phone’s camera a full view of the road ahead. The data is automatically uploaded to our AI-driven cloud platform to be analyzed. The video data, along with the smartphone’s other sensor capabilities, allow us to precisely calculate a wide variety of vital and established roadway metrics. The RoadBotics ‘red, yellow, green’ web accessible visualization map gives roadway managers a comprehensive and near real-time status of their roads, streets, bike paths, walkways and bridges.
