By collecting road images using smartphones (or driving recorders) mounted on vehicles and detecting road damages by emerging AI techniques, the My City Report for road managers project aims to comprehensively capture at comprehensively real-time grasping the road damage situation in real-time and optimizing optimize the efficiency of inspections operation. As the component of the My City Report consortium, this project launched and provided services in 13 municipalities with MCR for citizens (a civic collaboration contribution service) .
