Rust Belt Renaissance: Cincinnati’s OptoAI Story

For years, the city of Cincinnati has been scarred by deteriorating bridges, aging infrastructure, and unjustly noted as center of the nation’s Rust Belt. In an effort to change that, SFL Scientific, a Deloitte Business joined forces with Cincinnati's Mayor, Aftab Pureval, to revolutionize the way inspections are conducted for critical infrastructure around the city.

Led by Michael Segala, PhD, the SFL Scientific team used drones armed with high-definition sensors to model and scan infrastructure core to the city's economy. Through augmented and virtual reality, the cityscape transforms into a digital blueprint, revealing detailed structural nuances, and Mayor Pureval’s insights were translated into actionable data. SFL Scientific’s precision algorithms condense months of analysis into minutes, enabling prioritization of repair efforts and ultimately optimizing the potential to safeguard lives.
