Interested in learning more about what Univrses does?


Research and development in computer vision and machine learning is rapidly evolving. In this newsroom, you can read about Univrses’ activities and contribution to research, as well as the latest news from the industry.

In Stockholm, there are approximately 4 times as many road signs as there are inhabitants. Discovering damaged signs in this vast network can be both difficult, time consuming and costly. Yet, it’s crucial for the successful functioning of the city. Stockholm needs continuously updated maps to maintain their road signs, and that is where we come in.

At Univrses, 3DAI™ City is being developed to collect recent road sign data. In 2021, Univrses will deploy this capability as part of the Nordic Way 3 initiative. Together with our friends at @trafikverket and @stockholms.stad , we will carry out road sign analysis in the Swedish capital. Our objective is to make road sign maintenance more efficient - and our roads more secure.

Stay tuned for more information about this!

Searching for a parking spot is stressful and a waste of time. But it also causes pollution (around 10% of the transport sector CO2 emissions!), congestion and lost productivity in the urban area.

3DAI™ City initiates a new paradigm in city parking. Univrses is developing technology to deliver on-street parking occupancy data in real-time, enabling drivers to find a free spot - and stop clogging the streets.

Understanding the ebb and flow of people’s movement in large cities is not a new task. With the COVID-19 pandemic, facilitating social distancing is at the top of every city’s agenda. As for many urban challenges, data is key. But when it comes to data about people, so is integrity.

3DAI™ City provides access to anonymised pedestrian density data. A constant stream of aggregated data, helping governments and municipalities to understand people’s movement in urban areas, and enabling more efficient pedestrian traffic planning.

Potholes and other road damage cause harm. To vehicles, to the environment and, potentially, to people. Right now, the city relies on the general public for information about road damage issues.

3DAI™ City introduces a new way of dealing with road damage. As computer vision algorithms process live images of the city, cracks, potholes and other damage can be detected and dealt with immediately.

A functioning road network is one of the fundamental building blocks of our modern society. Today, manual inspections ensure our roads are safe and operational. But these inspections cause disruption, often requiring roads to be closed. And they are expensive. Very expensive.

3DAI™ City reduces the need for manual road inspections. The platform provides real-time reports on traffic signs and other road-related assets. This enables efficient resource deployment - and saves money.

Roadworks - a never-ending part of the urban environment. Yet knowing where they are, their effect on traffic and ensuring that they are safe is time consuming, and costs cities a fortune every year.

3DAI™ City provides access to real-time data about roadworks in urban areas. This enables rapid resource deployment and efficient traffic planning, and it reduces the roadwork’s negative impact on the successful functioning of the city.
