European road maintenance in the cloud
European roads are scarred by potholes, despite a whopping EUR 6 billion spent on maintenance each year. The problem is an inefficient corrective strategy for pavement reparations due to the high costs of human inspection services. No targeted, ecological and efficient preventive works strategy exists. The EU-funded PAV-DT project is working on a solution. It is developing new inexpensive disruptive technology that exploits an advanced algorithm, a cloud-platform to be installed and used in any vehicle. This equipment makes detecting and reporting information about road problems immediate, cheap and easy. In turn, this ensures that necessary repairs and maintenance are undertaken in time.
