Fujitsu AI Technology Helps Prevent Sinkholes in Support of Kawasaki Geological Engineering's Road Cavity Surveys

Kawasaki Geological Engineering Co., Ltd., Fujitsu Limited, and Fujitsu Traffic & Road Data Service Limited today announced that Kawasaki Geological Engineering has leveraged Fujitsu's AI engine to develop subsurface cavity survey technology. Being able to more accurately detect underground cavities that can cause sinkholes in roads, this technology will be made available as a service beginning in the summer of 2017.

Kawasaki Geological Engineering is using FUJITSU Cloud Service K5 Zinrai Platform Service Zinrai Deep Learning--Fujitsu's deep learning platform service--to analyze and process the huge volume of radar images collected with underground radar probe equipment. This increases the efficiency of the search for underground cavities, which previously required expert technicians to make visual determinations. In addition, by connecting this technology with a service which displays the problem spots on a map--provided by Fujitsu Traffic & Road Data Service--the positions of cavities beneath road surfaces can be accurately understood, making the necessity of road repairs clear to local governments.
