''A safer Dutch road network, that's what I longed for about eight years ago when the first idea for Real-Time Road Inspection (RTRI) popped into my head. For my work at Takke-Breukelen B.V. we are on the road a lot. While driving, you see many deviations in the infrastructure, such as holes in the road or traffic signs that are placed incorrectly. Surely there should be a simple way for this information to reach companies who can do something with it?
Once the idea was born, DTT was able to convert it into the RTRI app, which delivers real-time images of the current state of roads and public spaces and sends them to an online platform that companies can join. A useful app for any company that has anything to do with public space. This is because it allows for the quick resolution of infrastructure anomalies. Users also have the option of flagging images when deviations are noticed on the road, for example when there is damage to the road surface.
We at RTRI are extremely satisfied with the app developed by DTT. Everything has been thought of. Faces and license plates that are loaded into the app, for instance, are blurred by means of Artificial Intelligence. In this way the privacy of everyone is guaranteed, while the app can do its work. DTT has also ensured that new data automatically replaces outdated data. Moreover, a very complex caching mechanism was used, because a lot of data will be loaded into the app (over time). A fine piece of work, in which we have experienced a very pleasant cooperation.''
