Andreas Hall
Helsingborg Stad

🌍 The problem: Slow and expensive inventory of street network affecting traffic safety, and leading to inefficient use of resources.

💡 The solution: AI-based evaluation of damages on paving and traffic signs, detecting cracks, potholes, patches and iron plates. 

Helsingborg Stad are using an AI-technology in (almost) regular smart phones mounted as dashcams in garbage trucks. Those vehicles covers almost around 95% of the road network that the city is responsible to maintain. Installed on the phones used are an AI-app that, on-the-fly, makes an evaluation of the damage level on the paving. We detect cracks, potholes, patches and iron plates. They detect traffic signs to see if they are damaged, or if they are occluded, if they are littered or having bad reflection and also if we have a mismatch against NVDB.
