Urban Environment City Scanner for Smart & Sustainable Cities

Remotely gather data and analyse the condition of built infrastructure and assets. Our solution automatically scans your assets using a city scanner attached to a vehicle or fixed to the structure. Data is transmitted via 5G to deliver reporting for predictive maintenance, rather than reactive.

The Challenge. It’s not easy to stay on top of asset monitoring and maintenance.

Getting teams of engineers to go out and inspect the assets at fixed intervals is not ideal as it’s expensive, time-consuming, and doesn’t provide continuous data.

As cities and towns grow in population, more and more pressure is put on infrastructure assets and the need for predictive maintenance increases. There’s a real demand for dynamic, wide-ranging and constant data delivery for urban planners and the private sector.

VTX City is a revolutionary all in one system for real-time monitoring and data collection from the built urban environment.

Our advanced city scanner technology transmits over 5G to collect data whilst driving around the city, or for continuous monitoring of a single asset in real-time. VTX City delivers actionable insights, from road conditions to local infrastructure issues. Act quickly to prevent failures with rapid notifications and condition reports.

VTX City includes our powerful vehicle to infrastructure scanning system that uses LiDAR scanning and AI technology to detect, classify, and map objects in real-time.

The potential is limitless. Scan and monitor any asset or infrastructure item, including:

  • Potholes - detect and monitor their growth rate
  • Road signs - monitor condition, damaged, leaning
  • Lamp posts - damaged, leaning
  • Traffic lights - damaged, leaning
  • Foliage - overgrown, fallen branches, etc.
  • Dropped kerbs, missing road markings
  • Road spillages, wastage spill
  • Plus many more use cases

Make sure that your urban assets are in the best possible condition with predictive maintenance, powered by VTX City.
