The Toyota Mobility Foundation is to carry out a study on using connected car data to inform road maintenance in Akaiwa City, Japan.
The study will combine connected car data and image data from vehicle video cameras to help local governments shorten lead time to uncover dangerous road infrastructure issues.
As part of the study, Toyota held a conference with Okayama University and the city’s police to develop a sustainable low-cost system for road maintenance. Other topics included traffic safety, traffic congestion and safe mobility in the case of natural disasters.
