Robotic inspections are more accurate, less costly

The Georgia Department of Transportation partnered with the Georgia Tech Research Institute to create robotic technology that will automatically detect and repair damaged roads. The “Roadbot” is fully automated and requires only a single operator.

The Roadbot has the potential to save states significant amounts of money by taking a preemptive approach toward road maintenance. By preventing larger damage, the Roadbot could allow states to focus their resources on other projects. Detection accuracy currently sits at 83 percent.
