Software to Help Prevent Potholes
The Université de Sherbrooke has developed artificial vision software that will make it possible to better control the quality of the asphalt applied to Québec’s roads.
The Analyseur Thermo monitors the temperature of asphalt in real time, as it is beingspread, which is one of the determining factors in the durability of a road surface.
The software, developed by Professor Djemel Ziou’s team in collaboration with the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ), then automatically forwards its non-compliance findings.
At the end of the road, this technological breakthrough could prevent the emergence of cracks and potholes.
The software is currently in the intensive development phase, but already, trials in the field have proven successful.
