Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

March 29, 2019 - The City of Savannah has been named a finalist in the Transportation/Infrastructure category for its partnership with the company Roadbotics. It’s a recognition bestowed by International Data Corporation’s (IDC) 2019 Smart Cities North America Awards. Roadbotics worked with the City to create a database of road infrastructure conditions through machine learning technology that grades every mile of the Savannah road network.

Voting is open to the public for the final round through April 3. The City encourages the public to go to and cast their vote. The winners in each category will be announced on Monday, April 8.

“Our use of AI technology will allow us to better assess the overall condition of City roadways and increase the accuracy of the data collected,” said Heath Lloyd, the City’s Chief Infrastructure and Development Officer. “Our goal is to use our resources in the most efficient manner possible. Data-driven AI technology helps us accomplish that goal by enhancing our ability to better plan and implement City-wide roadway replacement schedules.”
