About diGuRal

As part of the project, the recording of Leipzig’s road network is being optimized under the coordination of Aufbauwerk Region Leipzig GmbH. For this purpose, modern sensor and camera technologies are used on the waste disposal vehicles of Stadtreinigung Leipzig to collect anonymized data on the road condition. Together with the companies Cyface and ccc software GmbH, machine learning models for the recognition and anonymization of image data from road traffic are being further developed at the ScaDS.AI of the University of Leipzig. But that’s not all: the city of Leipzig subsequently processes the innovative data, opening up exciting application possibilities for areas such as transportation and logistics, public administration, construction and infrastructure, and the automotive industry.

The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport as part of the mFUND innovation initiative with a total of €1,873,882 and has a term of three years.
