Road network resilience to climate change

Leverage topography data, weather information and artificial intelligence to assess risks on the network

Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), satellite data, and precipitation information offers a promising approach to assess the resilience of road networks. AI algorithms process satellite imagery to identify road infrastructure vulnerabilities, such as damage from extreme weather events or erosion caused by heavy rainfall.

Additionally, integrating precipitation data allows for predictive analysis, enabling the identification of areas prone to flooding or landslides that might disrupt road networks.

By continuously monitoring and analyzing these factors, authorities and infrastructure planners can proactively plan maintenance and repairs, allocate resources efficiently, and improve the resilience of road networks to climate-related challenges. This approach not only enhances connectivity and accessibility but also contributes to overall socioeconomic development in developing nations by ensuring dependable transportation systems.
