Telangana AI Mission (T-AIM) has rolled out a Mobility AI Grand Challenge to assist Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to identify and classify potholes for repair. The challenge is open to all AI innovators in the country and the shortlisted participants will get four weeks to develop a proof of concept.
With the help of the solutions presented, startups are expected to provide spatial density and distribution of potholes based on their severity across the city. The solutions would determine the number of potholes, examine their exact depth and find measures to fill them.
T-AIM said that the submissions would be judged on approach and results. “Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) aims to identify and classify pothole severity across specified routes in Hyderabad using live and archived video feeds. The solutions developed using artificial intelligence will provide its officials additional insights to undertake targeted repair works.”

The deadline to submit proposals is September 16 and the winner would be announced on November 22.
