XenomatiX wins prestigious award for its 6D road scanning technology


The International Road Federation (IRF) has awarded XenomatiX the Global Road Achievement Awards (GRAA) for its 6D road scanning and surveying solutions.

‘’This award recognizes XenomatiX for leading the way in excellence and innovation for the road and transport industry. It is an honour to be recognized by the IRF, one of the industry’s most influential organizations globally,” said Filip Geuens, CEO of XenomatiX.

The IRF GRAA program is a worldwide competition to identify excellence, innovation, and exceptional achievement in 12 vital road and transport sector categories. The IRF recognised the winners of its 2021 GRAA competition at the 18th IRF World Meeting and Exhibition on November 8th, in Dubai. Nominations for the awards were published this week, here.

XenomatiX specialises in the design and development of solid-state-lidar and offers millimetre precision road survey measurement equipment and services. XenomatiX technology can identify road waviness, road damage, and small and nearly invisible objects in real-time.

Its road lidar, XenoTrack, is mounted on a regular vehicle and digitizes the road surface, collecting 3D point clouds, surface reflectivity data and 2D camera images in a total of six dimensions, all annotated with detailed GPS data. With the corresponding data, municipalities can better determine when and where road repairs are needed. It is ideal for applications such as pothole detection, surface monitoring during road construction works, seasonal surface degradation analysis, road waviness, digital twin analysis, …

In the next 10 years, the company believes that with higher levels of autonomous vehicles, this technology will be implemented in many cars and data will be collected by all road users.
