Space-powered Urban Solutions

Space-powered Urban Solutions is an AI-enabled, space-derived innovative technology initiative addressing urban challenges in Kathmandu Metropolitan City(KMC) capital of Nepal. KMC is home to 1.6 million people and faces chronic traffic congestion every day. Lack of planning, digital information on land use, house information, and road mapping has led to unplanned, dense urbanization and ineffective disaster assessment as witnessed during the devastating 2015 earthquake. SPUS directly impacts the lives of all residents by improving their quality of life. Through strategic partnerships with departments like the City Planning Commission and the Kathmandu Valley Traffic Police, SPUS enables effective analysis of traffic, digitization, and disaster assessment using satellite imagery and deep learning models to foster sustainable urban development. It utilizes the framework of KMC and aims to expand it to other cities. Click here for more information:
