The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is seeking startups to provide novel AI solutions to detect and classify potholes in the city.
Telangana AI Mission (T-AIM) was established by the Government of Telangana with a vision to position Telangana as a global hub for Artificial Intelligence and foster social innovation. Powered by NASSCOM, one focus area for T-AIM is Sustainable Cities & Communities.
During the four year period - 2017-2020 - 22,631 accidents were reported due to potholes. These accidents led to 9,223 lives lost and 19,977 injuries. Statistically, on a daily basis, 16 accidents occur in India on an average day, and they result in six lives getting lost and more than 13 people getting injured. Road safety is an integral part of road design during planning and during operating conditions.
Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), video feed (40 fps or higher) from specific routes in Hyderabad will need to be analyzed for potholes. The potholes visible in the video feed will need to be identified and classified using AI. Classification of pothole severity may be undertaken based on the surface area and depth of the pothole.
