AI technology driving our data collection services

by Australian Road Research Board on September 15, 2020

ARRB’s network survey vehicles are now equipped with the latest AI technology. ARRB is working with Mobileye the world leader in AI and machine vision.

The unique advantage of the technology ARRB has deployed across its vehicle fleet is that the intelligence is embedded in the vehicle and can process data in real-time. The cameras fitted to our vehicles are using AI to read the road, building a catalogue of information about the road as we drive.

This replaces the traditional method of saving and storing files to be later processed offline. Embedding AI and streamlining the process as ARRB has done, allows for faster results, more efficient data collection and lends itself to cloud storage and retrieval.

The benefits of fitting our vehicle fleet with Mobileye is two-fold; firstly our drivers are safer with Mobileye advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) active in the vehicle including lane departure warning and rear crash avoidance. These safety benefits are derived from the same chipset used by Tesla, Audi and Volvo.

In addition to the safety benefits we are now for the first time able to audit our road network from the perspective of a machine vision system. In the first instance this can be used for asset recognition of line-marking, signs, and lane width, and beyond this the AI applications include road safety, congestion and the digitisation of road infrastructure.
