Preventing accidents like in the pictures where steep slopes on the side of the road could cause serious harm and fatalities, road & transport authorities build guard rails.
To identify where a guard rail is required, road-side slope measures are required with specific locations/coordinates.
Today, this process is done manually with a clintometer as in the picture. This is a process that can take multiple people many weeks or months depending on the length of the road(s).
com-iot developed and successfully deployed I-Slope.
Using LiDAR sensors, I-Slope’s intelligent AI algorithm automatically detects road-side slopes with the coordinates. All is needed is a driver who drives the road at full speed, by the time they arrive at the end, they have a file with all slopes and associated coordinates, thresholds, and alerts. A major cost saving invention for Road & Transport companies.
