The challenge: Improve road surveys, leverage more data

Bexley is an outer London borough situated on the edge of Kent and maintains a predominantly urban road network with medium traffic flows. Despite the high usage, however, its legacy third-party road condition survey process only provided full pavement condition data every 4 years (25% of network is surveyed annually) — complicating maintenance and hindering leaders trying to predict and budget for repairs. What Bexley needed was obvious (more data, faster) but the right solution wasn't so obvious until Vaisala started a conversation about Road AI.
