Roads Are Complex
Continually in use, and continually abused, roads are the lifeblood of the world's infrastructure.
Road managers everywhere have the challenges of first identifying and then assessing roadway problems or anomalies before they can begin making the difficult choices of how to respond to an increasing variety of complex conditions.
With roadway management budgets already stretched far too thin, today's road managers must regularly make difficult choices about how, when and where to allocate assets to repair and rebuild their roadways. Road managers are experts at fixing problems once they are found, but finding and assessing the problems in a comprehensive and time-sensitive manner is the road manager’s toughest challenge. The result is that small and readily addressable problems suddenly become very expensive problems.
The relentless impact of use and time takes a toll on every road. Only the most skilled observers can assess these effects early on and take preventive action. Direct observation of all roads by such skilled roadway managers is time-consuming and expensive. Moreover, processing this information takes months before a decision can be made. To top it off, the sheer scale and complexity of the world’s roadway infrastructure make it nearly impossible to monitor roads for distresses continuously, in real-time.

Identifying the most damaged or concerning roadway sections immediately
Prioritizing repairing by severity
Monitoring the degradation with continuous re-assessment
Assessing repair and construction performance over time intervals
Allocating limited resources continuously, comprehensively and confidently
By allowing road managers to focus on solving problems instead of gathering information, Roadbotics substantially reduces the total cost of operating your roads to the point where many road managers can now do regular and comprehensive assessments for the first time.
