Waterfall AI

Ecole Supérieure Polytechnique de Dakar

With more and more people living in cities, infrastructure is struggling to meet mobility needs. Indeed, infrastructures can not expand at will: impossible to push the buildings or to superpose the pavements to face the motorized traffic. And yet, in many cities where traffic jams are a big problem, the authorities are increasing as much…

Cooperative data sourcing platform and AI analytics for a road condition survey

Adamas University

Road-based transportation is always essential for the operation of government, and public roads are the backbone of the nation's economy. Still, the maintenance and survey of the roads are in the dinosaur age mostly done by manual methods and Network Survey Vehicles (NSVs). The manual intensive survey leads to an increase in budgetary constraints, under-investigated…
