UC researchers, Honda partner on AI-powered project

The dream of your car automatically reporting potholes to authorities who can speedily fix them could be close at hand.

The Ohio Department of Transportation is sponsoring a project, led by Honda Motor Co. and University of Cincinnati researchers, to study whether artificial intelligence can make that very dream a reality – and even save lives.

The goal of the two-year project is to test the viability of using anonymized data mass collected from camera-equipped cars and AI algorithms to pinpoint road hazards in real time on the 50,000 lane miles and 45,000 bridges under ODOT management.
