Bridgestone Mobility Solutions introduces Bridgestone Road Terms, a suite of solutions designed to provide valuable insights based on aggregated and anonymized data from Webfleet-connected vehicles. Bridgestone Road Conditions aims to help cities, municipalities, road authorities, map providers and commercial fleet owners better understand the condition and quality of their road network. Initially, customers will have access to two solutions that show the location and extent of damage on the road and depict different routes. Advanced data solutions play an important role in improving road and driver safety, in line with the European Union’s target to reduce road deaths and serious injuries by 50 per cent by 2030.
The Road Damage Detection solution identifies road violations using anonymized data collected from connected vehicles equipped with Webfleet fleet management solutions. Using sensors and vehicle data, this unique tool accurately locates damage on the road, such as potholes, cracks, and bumps. Using an artificial intelligence algorithm, the extent of damage to the road can be determined, helping drivers and fleet managers reduce the risk of accidents and prevent damage to tires and vehicles. Cities and road authorities can also use these insights to improve preventive maintenance and infrastructure planning.

In addition, the road asset visualization solution provides road and infrastructure information by analyzing data from multiple sensors and cameras attached to the vehicle. Vehicle-mounted cameras have Edge AI capabilities that process data in real time on the device. Data privacy is ensured by uploading only anonymous data to the cloud for further analysis. In this way, road assets and features such as road signs, traffic lights, and lane markings can be visualized and identified if they are damaged, destroyed, or blocked by vegetation.
“Bridgestone road conditions can help improve road safety and comfort by providing real-time data insights into road damage that enables preventative road maintenance, infrastructure planning and traffic flow optimization,” said Raghunath Banerjee, Vice President of Data Solutions at Bridgestone Mobility Solutions. . These advanced data solutions will play an essential role in the digital transformation of future mobility, driving the development of smart cities and mobility-as-a-service providers as well as connected and autonomous vehicles. In line with the Bridgestone E8 commitment, our new range of data solutions contribute to a more sustainable and secure future for mobility. “
