Brimbank Council's innovative 5G research project reaches new milestone

Brimbank Council's groundbreaking research project based on 5G technology has reportedly achieved a new milestone with the AI (artificial intelligence) development to detect dumped rubbish and damaged road signs.

According to sources, the Mobile 5G IoT (Internet of Things) solution for data-based road asset maintenance is delivered with the Optus - Swinburne University of Technology collaboration.

Apparently, GPS sensors and high-resolution stereo vision cameras were deployed on 11 waste collection trucks to gather the information during usual rounds across the Council's 900km road network.

This technology-enabled documents visualize the evidence of broken signs and dumped rubbish while pinning their exact position on a municipality map dashboard. Subsequently, this data facilitates the Council to investigate the prospects of automated notifications and asset monitoring for real-time maintenance requirements.

Sources report that the project's next phase includes integrating this into Council's digital systems and processes.

In a community survey, the residents informed the Council that improving the appearance of Brimbank's roadside spaces and roads is a high priority.

The Council thus manages around 20,000 road signs and receives around 7,000 reports of dumped rubbish yearly. This research also intends to eventually identify road maintenance requirements, like faded line markings and potholes.

Cr Jasmine Nguyen, Brimbank Mayor, mentioned that this innovative 5G-based solution research project offers the potential of more efficient ways for the firm to identify maintenance and the derivation of this information to the work crews to respond.

Nguyen claimed that this exciting project milestone demonstrates that AI can capture an image and identify road signs, graffiti, or mattresses dumped along the roadside.

Nguyen further mentioned that this research is a great example of how technology could be deployed in the current process and optimized in the existing services to the Brimbank community.

Reportedly, the research project is backed by a $1.18 Mn Federal Government grant as part of the Australian 5G Innovation Initiative.

It has also been revealed that the program was commenced to assist small to large businesses in testing and developing 5G uses, services, products, and applications.
