Hondas on Ohio Highways Will Find Faded Lane Markers, Shoot Video

Honda’s Research Institute USA has invented a system that uses Honda vehicles to evaluate the condition of roads they travel on. The system will monitor and grade lane markings on a scale from Ideal to Need Repair, using GPS coordinates and onboard cameras to collect information in real time.

The two vehicles in the pilot program, initially only in the state of Ohio, will capture location coordinates (longitude and latitude), along with images and video clips of the roads. The system views and classifies lane lines to the left and right of the vehicle and color-codes them by condition: green (Ideal), yellow (Good), red (Needs Repair), and gray (no lane lines). The collected data will be anonymously sent to a secure platform where it can be analyzed and then shared with the state DOT.
