Provided Morpho’s AI-based road defect detection technology to Micware’s “Mvcube(TM)”, which is being used for road monitoring demonstration tests in Adachi Ward.

Morpho, Inc. (located in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President: Hiroki Hiraga, hereinafter referred to as Morpho) is a company that is being used for road monitoring demonstration experiments in Adachi Ward, which started on November 14, 2022. Provided Morpho-developed AI-based road defect detection technology to Mvcube (TM), a recording data distribution service of Micware (Headquarters: Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture, President and Chairman: Kenji Narushima, hereinafter referred to as Micware).

Details of the demonstration experiment
“Mvcube(TM)” provided by Micware is a recording that matches the conditions such as the date, time, place, device, etc. from the data recorded by the communication type drive recorder installed in the garbage truck running in Adachi Ward. Data can be extracted and viewed.
In this demonstration experiment, we will narrow down the trouble spots on the road that have been analyzed in advance using big data. A communication-type drive recorder is installed in a garbage truck in Adachi Ward, and only the recorded data of the narrowed-down areas with defects is efficiently collected in the cloud via wireless communication.
Recorded data collected in the cloud is used by Morpho’s AI analysis software to detect road defects.

1. Collaborate with various information services to narrow down target areas and collect images efficiently
Links with various information services such as weather/disaster information, mobility/mobile device information, road/facility information, etc. to narrow down the places you want to see. From various camera images in the city such as communication type drive recorders of vehicles, surveillance / security cameras, smartphones, etc., only the images of narrowed down areas are extracted and collected in the Mvcube cloud.
In order to collect only the video that is really necessary, it is an efficient video collection system that can reduce communication costs for collection and cloud/storage costs for video storage.
2. Analyze the narrowed down video in a form that suits the purpose and provide various services
Morpho’s AI analyzes the images narrowed down according to the application for various purposes such as weather conditions, disaster conditions, traffic conditions, accidents, road conditions, etc., and displays and views the really necessary information with emphasis. We provide a service that reduces the burden on administrators/monitors. Related Disclosure Information
