The City of Ottawa is using a specially modified golf cart to track the conditions of its local bike paths. According to a CBC report, the cart has a GPS sensor and a front mounted camera that automatically takes a photo every 10 metres.
So far the cart has found that most of the city’s paths are in fairly good condition, but there are some problems areas such as a section of pathway near Centrepointe. The cart’s findings are suppose to be published in the city’s report on the state of its assets.
Apparently, Ottawa and Mississauga are the only two municipalities using such a cart.
