We support the management of sustainable urban spaces through utilization of cutting-edge technology.
We replace conventional vehicle-based visual road damage inspections, as currently performed by many local governments, with AI (artificial intelligence) to accurately and speedily detect locations of road damage and to improve work efficiency.
There are an increasing number of local governments unable to carry out sufficient inspections due to budget constraints as well as experiencing shortages of technical staff. Although some local governments are conducting inspections of road surface conditions using specialized cars, comprehensive inspections cannot be performed because of the high costs involved. UrbanX Tech's technology enables real-time, quantitative road inspection utilizing only smartphones and drive-recorders.
Only a smartphone is required.
Furthermore, comprehensively inspecting all roads under management becomes feasible.
As the damaged areas are visualized in real-time, the technology is useful to facilitate the quick repair of potholes and develop a long-term repair plan that takes into consideration factors such as the crack rate.
Our computer algorithms perform a quantitative road evaluation.

Our logo emphasizes our corporate philosophy of “gathering and consolidating information widely to create a bright future”. The upper triangle (▼), signifies collection and aggregation of information, whereas the lower triangle (▲), represents the extracting of value from the information. Gradations in color from deep blue to lighter shades, express the notion that chaotic real-world data is being consistently aggregated to create value for a smarter and brighter future.
