Honda Research Institute U.S.A, Inc. is developing a road condition monitoring system that uses vehicle technology to evaluate road conditions in an effort to detect possible hazards.

With this vehicle-generated reporting system, Honda hopes to help road operators monitor lane marking conditions in a more frequent, efficient and cost-effective way.

A pilot programme in Ohio U.S.A, is already being held to evaluate the system. It uses GPS coordinates and sensors such as cameras to collect real-time road condition information that can be shared with road operators. Honda is already collaborating with the Ohio Department of Transportation and plans to start providing road condition data from early 2022 to help enhance the efficiency of road maintenance in Ohio.

The firm also is exploring how connected vehicles can access the anonymised data to adjust Honda and Acura Advanced Driver Assistance System’s perception settings, and if needed, warn drivers if lane markings are faded or are in need of repair.
