Identify Road Assets
with Mobile Mapping

Detekt offers a powerful solution for surveyors, public administrations, and road maintenance teams, streamlining the identification and localization of road assets. This includes road signs, road markings, and road condition assessment, among others, simplifying asset management processes.

How it works

With Detekt, you can use Artificial Intelligence to automatically identify road signs, road defects, manhole covers, road markings, and more.

What Data do I need?

Detekt is compatible with georeferenced images, point clouds, and GIS data, offering extensive location-based features for diverse applications.


Pavement camera imagePanoramic camera image
  • Spherical/Panoramic, stereo or pavement camera images are recommended across all use cases. Pavement camera images are required to maximize the results of our road defects model.
  • The standard resolution is 24 MP, capturing one image every 3 meters. Increasing both resolution and image frequency can significantly improve the outcomes.
  • Images should be formatted in either JPG or PNG. Supported camera models include spherical, stereo, and planar types.

Metadata & Point Cloud

High resolution point cloud
  • To accurately localize the asset and project it on the map, it is essential to provide GPS time, positioning, pitch, yaw, and roll.
  • Intrinsic camera parameters must be included for all non-panoramic images, such as images from frame or pavement cameras.

Missing the data? We got you covered!

Detekt provides immediate access to millions of current images and LiDAR point cloud data worldwide.

Which Model do you offer off the shelf?

The pipeline utilizes a three-stage instance segmentation process to handle mobile mapping data effectively.

Road Defects

Road Damages detection in Mobile Mapping data with Artificial Intelligence
  • Detection of various defects such as cracks, alligator cracks, potholes and raveling
  • Flexibility to expand coverage to meet country-specific PCI and additional regional requirements
  • Temporary and permanent patches
  • Repaired cracks, open joints and closed joints

Road Markings

Road Markings detection in Mobile Mapping data with Artificial Intelligence
  • Precise identification and measurement of road markings, including lane lines, pedestrian crossings, and traffic symbols
  • Evaluation of the present state of road markings to facilitate optimal roadway management approaches
  • Thorough evaluation of diverse road marking varieties and their states to boost safety and optimize traffic flow

Road Signs

Road Signs detection in Mobile Mapping data with Artificial Intelligence
  • Detailed identification and classification of road signs, including regulatory, cautionary, and informative signs
  • Mapping of traffic signs across diverse road landscapes and settings, guaranteeing worldwide reach
  • Versatility in customization and extension of service scope to align with nation-specific standards and supplemental local demands

How are objects located?

The detection results - points and polygons - are converted from image coordinates into world coordinates using 3D lidar data or depth maps from stereoscopic images and GNSS data. This transformation provides world-space projected points and polygons, accurately pinpointing the location of detected objects or surfaces.

What's so special about Detekt?

Objects detected within multiple images and times are fused into a single, unified detection. This aggregation enhances the robustness and accuracy of the detection process through the principle of multiple 'votes' confirming the presence of the same object.

What do I do with the results?

Detections and location data are individually integrated into your internal processes & workflows.

Export results as a shapefile or GeoJSON for analysis using GIS tools such as ArcGIS or QGIS.


Which image data does Detekt work with?

We can process any image data, including videos, from various sources like planar and stereoscopic images, and 360° captures. Our expertise spans major brands like Teledyne LadyBug, Leica, Trimble, and Riegl. Calibration of any camera setup is crucial to enhance detection accuracy.

What can I do if I don't have any image data available?

We provide millions of current images and LiDAR point cloud data globally, in partnership with TomTom. For further details, please contact our Sales team.

What data is needed for basic georeferencing?

For accurate location determination and proper display in the Viewer, GNSS coordinates (such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, or BEIDOU) and image orientation are essential.

How do you calculate accuracy?

For evaluating GIS accuracy, we split the road surface into tiles of 0.25m x0.25m. A tile is considered correctly classified if the overlap of all the annotation classes and the detected classes within it exceeds a certain threshold.

How can the exact position and size of a detection be determined?

Detekt utilizes various methods to precisely locate and determine the size of detected objects or surfaces from provided image depth data:

  • If each image includes camera pose and orientation, we can estimate distances to objects, offering an approximate detection location.
  • Using stereoscopic images, distances are calculated through photogrammetric methods, requiring both interior and exterior orientation as inputs.
  • 3D point clouds, primarily produced via 3D laser scanners and LiDAR technology, facilitate precise measurements and provide more accurate positioning than data derived solely from images.

How can Detekt minimize the number of incorrect detections?

Detekt employs a proprietary method, known as object fusion, to integrate separate detections from various images and data sources. Our custom algorithm not only merges classification and location data but also applies logical weighting to enhance accuracy. Additionally, it tracks and compares identical objects over different times to monitor condition changes.

How do you make sure that GDPR and anonymization requirements are met?

Our viewer incorporates a high-quality, scalable image anonymization tool that blurs faces, bodies, and license plates in panoramas, planar images, and videos.

Is Detekt a cloud or desktop software?

Detekt is a cloud-based solution. We also offer a Docker container that can be deployed on your local machine or infrastructure.

Cloud deployments benefit from more frequent updates and improvements to our models and software.

To comply with local regulations, Detekt can be deployed in a local AWS data center. Explore all available AWS data centers.
