3M and Mobileye, an Intel company, have joined forces to bring crowdsourced infrastructure asset data to transportation agencies through the 3M Roadway Safety Asset Manager platform.
According to 3M, its Roadway Safety Asset Manager puts roadway safety assets in one easy-to-navigate, cloud-based solution and helps transportation authorities manage their road assets such as signs, pavement markings, barriers, guardrails and more. When used by maintenance teams and crew managers, the platform enables the scheduling of maintenance or replacement tasks, and offers reporting and querying functionality to run analysis on digitalized asset data.
To meet the growing demand for data-driven asset management services, transportation authorities need appropriate, high-quality data collection systems, helping them to allocate their resources and prioritize projects in a timely and cost-effective manner. The collaboration between 3M and Mobileye will enable transportation authorities to modernize their asset management tools with frequently updated asset data, helping them meet their operational and safety goals. Mobileye’s crowdsourced mapping technology, which harnesses artificial intelligence and computer-vision technologies, will be used to help automate the mapping, monitoring and maintenance prioritization of roadway assets.
“Making data-driven decisions is essential in asset management, and ultimately, a crucial element in improving roadway safety,” said Uri Tamir, general manager of Mobileye North America. “3M’s innovative asset management solution puts the power of advanced data technology in the hands of transportation infrastructure authorities in their pursuit of safer roads.”
