Caltrans experienced multiple highway utility strikes that caused several costly change orders, despite conducting numerous verifications through locators and potholes. They needed subsurface maps they could trust for redesigns to prevent further project delays and overruns.
Exodigo scanned the area and detected locations of 28 utilities - where previous locators had only identified 11.
The business case for multi-sensor fusion and AI for subsurface discovery is clear. Our underground utilities account for 50% of all delay-related change order dollars; that’s an enormous percentage, so reducing utility strikes represents savings of millions of dollars a year.
