Challenges and Solutions
The UK Pavement Manage System (UKPMS) is the national standard for assessing local road network conditions, however this inspection process has its issues.
By using RoadBotics’ new AI technology, it transforms a traditionally time consuming, highly subjective and expensive system for analysing road networks and provides a more efficient approach.
Taking just four weeks to collect the data for the entire Borough, followed by feeding the data into the AI conditions assessment software, more time could be allowed to make key decisions when value managing Croydon’s assets.
Fuel emissions produced by driving a vehicle around Croydon to capture the data is also an issue. This is why FM Conway used an electric vehicle to reduce carbon emissions and help provide a greener environment, whilst inspecting the roads.
The use of RoadBotics new AI technology in the London Borough of Croydon has helped the Borough to maximise their planned maintenance budgets and develop next year’s planned preventative maintenance programme accordingly.
This method has proved to be efficient to the client and has led to Croydon utilising RoadBotics on an annual basis, ensuring that the right roads are treated at the right time and preventing any dangerous road issues from developing.
