Road Safety has taken a leap forward in the latest partnership between Gaist and Aisin.
AISIN, part of the Toyota Group, has developed technology branded RoadTrace™ which is able to detect unusual driving patterns directly from vehicles on the road. Data is harvested and aggregated from multiple sources, then processed using RoadTrace™ AI to produce the intelligent insights that indicate problems of road surface deterioration, signage, lining and road geometry or infrastructure design issues.
By providing high-definition visual imagery of these ‘red’ areas and access to their advanced scheme design capabilities, Gaist will support Aisin to deliver a powerful tool to local authorities and other asset owner / operators. It will enable them to efficiently and easily identify and target danger spots on their networks and develop appropriate repair and maintenance plans.
In addition to supporting road maintainers to efficiently tackle safety challenges, the service will significantly contribute to improving road safety for users and support the European Commission’s ‘VISION ZERO’ mission to reduce road deaths to zero by 2050.
Gaist’s collaboration with Aisin marks the latest in a series of partnerships which are taking its insights into a growing number of global markets. These include tie-ups with TRL – the global centre for innovation in surface transport and mobility, Smart Mobility Living Lab and leading data platform Confirm.
The tie-up will see Gaist take another step towards applying its roads data to support more efficient, greener and safer transport infrastructure around the globe.
