Sensor van based inspections are generally more expensive and take longer processing times. Moreover, since sensor vans need to be driven to the customer’s location, van availability can affect road inspection schedules – and delay paving. Due to the amount of data sensor vans collect, processing times are as high as a year! Many small to medium sized municipalities have found that most sensor van services provide too much data – more than what is needed to make informed data-driven decisions.
RoadBotics simplifies the data collection process by using just one sensor – a smartphone. As a result our teams are deployed for data collection much faster. The data is analyzed using artificial intelligence to generate a 5-tiered rating for every 10-ft section of the road. RoadBotics typically has a much faster turnaround. The data can be accessed through our online interactive GIS platform called RoadWay. In addition we provide GIS and CSV files for use with your existing GIS or Pavement Management System.
