Safety barrier monitoring: using AI + IoT technology to improve road.
Safety barriers have greatly improved the survivability of freeway accidents but they require monitoring and maintenance, and roads must often be cleared following an incident.
Without monitoring, delays can occur while waiting for crews to clear the road and replace damaged infrastructure. If not replaced in a timely manner, this can cause further problems and reduce the effectiveness of the barrier.
Additionally, routine visual inspection of barriers leads to inefficiencies and, unfortunately, causes unnecessary truck rolls as a result of inspecting intact infrastructure that didn’t need it.
