Road Maintenance Support Service Tests to Be Launched in Okazaki City, Utilizing Aisin Group’s Connected Technologies and Sensor Data Analysis Technologies

Aisin AW Co., Ltd. and Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd., in conjunction with Okazaki City (Aichi-prefecture, Japan), will launch tests to verify the efficacy of a new road maintenance support service beginning on October 2, 2019.

This is a total road maintenance service that detects road abnormalities from data collected by traveling vehicles, delivers this information, offers support for planning of repairs, and implements countermeasures. The service promises to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of maintenance operations.

Road maintenance work is crucial for enabling city residents to use roads with peace of mind, and faster and more efficient management work than ever is required. In response to such issues, Aisin Group's connected technologies and sensor data analysis technologies provide services that support road patrol work and project managers' repair plan formulation utilizing data collected by vehicles. Another important goal is to speed up management operations and improve efficiency to realize an environment where citizens can use roads safely and with peace of mind.
