Councils are to share £900,000 to invest in innovations using connected vehicles.

The trials aim to help councils more efficiently manage and plan maintenance works. These could include having the data to repair potholes before the occur and help prevent further road defects.

Blackpool Council has been given £100,000 to lead on a digital inspector scheme with eight councils. This will see high definition cameras mounted on vehicles to collect data on road and path conditions.

The City of York will also get £72,000 to use a similar system to build on its pothole spotter trial.

Other councils have been awarded funding to trial the use of smartphone sensors to collate road conditions, use connected vehicles to collect data on the condition of road signs, and trial the use of parking sensor cameras.
