|Road condition monitoring is performed using AI-based software, which helps capture images of potholes with accurate longitude and latitude coordinates. The software can identify 10 types of road defects and generate detailed segment-wise reports. Defects are graded from level 0 to 4, with color coding indicating the priority of stretches of roads requiring immediate attention. Based on the analysis, road rectification plans can be formulated. Minor road defects and potholes are addressed by the in-house team using Road Bond, while major defects are outsourced to contracted services.
