Strada Imaging Ltd, a pioneering Berkshire-based company, proudly announces the launch of DeepRoad, a groundbreaking Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering set to redefine road inspection methodologies. DeepRoad represents a leap forward in the world of pavement surface analysis, leveraging cutting-edge artificial intelligence and decoupling video capture from analysis to empower customers with unprecedented control and flexibility.
Traditional pavement surface inspection has been marred by exorbitant per-kilometer costs and the scarcity of analyzed Right-of-way (ROW) videos due to labor-intensive processes. DeepRoad addresses these challenges by allowing customers to use their own camera systems and personnel for inspections, making it a cost-effective solution for comprehensive road assessment.
DeepRoad’s unique architecture empowers users to selectively analyze data through a user-friendly web interface. This flexibility ensures that customers maintain complete control over when and what to analyze, setting DeepRoad apart from existing automated analysis solutions. The software’s transparency, delivering intermediate outcomes and final conclusions, builds confidence in the automation process.
DeepRoad’s modules automatically detect and classify pavement distresses such as cracks, potholes, ravelling, and patching. Another module identifies and geo-locates linear transportation assets like lampposts, traffic signs, marker posts, and more. Users can access specific analysis service modules based on their requirements.
A remarkable feat of DeepRoad is its ability to measure distress dimensions directly from video footage, eliminating the need for costly laser scanners. The pavement surface module boasts accurate 3D measurements of potholes, rut depth, cracking length, and density, providing an unparalleled level of detail.
DeepRoad stands out with its capability to automatically recognize over 580 traffic sign types used in the UK. The software’s proficiency extends to identifying and mapping assets in 3D with GPS localization, offering a comprehensive solution for road inspection.
The DeepRoad dashboard features multiple displays, showcasing various analysis outcomes, annotated image streams, and Google maps embedded with detections. Users have the ability to review and override AI decisions, providing a level of control and customization unparalleled in the market.
Ensuring 24/7 availability, DeepRoad operates on the Google Cloud platform, guaranteeing 100% uptime for users.
