The Cher Département rolls out ANAIS, a Colas solution designed to improve
road safety via preventive maintenance.
The Cher Département in central France has signed a 2-year contract with
Colas, via Mobility by Colas, covering the roll out of ANAIS, a digital
decision-making tool that uses data collected by vehicles. The objective of
ANAIS is to help improve user safety with preventive handling of potentially
hazardous zones across the local road network.
The Cher Département has almost 4,600 kilometers of roads under the
responsibility of the Conseil Départemental, which aims to meet the traffic
and safety needs of local residents. By collecting and analyzing behavior data
for many vehicles (e.g., speeding, lateral shifts, emergency braking), ANAIS
allow the Département to identify:
* Hazardous zones through better knowledge of the road network
* Ways to optimize preventive investments
* Ways to reinforce user safety at a lower cost.
The solution also brings in added value in terms of road diagnostics: once road
work has been completed, data is collected and analyzed to calculate a Calm
Driving Index, which measures the impact of the work that has been completed on
user safety. This index helps ANAIS provide real-time visibility on just how
much these projects actually serve users and it allows the Department to
implement a continuous improvement process for its road network.
ANAIS is based on a partnership signed in 2018 by Colas with Michelin Driving
Data to Intelligence (DDI) to acquire real-life, real-time driving data. The
data comes from a community of volunteer drivers ("Better Driving Community"),
and is aggregated, contextualized, analyzed and processed by teams at Mobility
ANAIS received the Road Safety Innovation Award in 2019.
