gNext Signs with Alabama Department of Transportation to Support Their Digital Infrastructure Asset Management

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA (May 4, 2023) — gNext today announced it has been chosen by the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) as a solution partner for their digital inspections. gNext is excited to partner with ALDOT to provide our platform to support them in managing and maintaining the state’s construction and infrastructure assets. With gNext, they will be able to manage their construction projects and inspections, monitor progress, and visualize change-over-time through 3D and 2D analysis.

“We could not be happier to work with the Alabama Department of Transportation to meet their digital inspection needs. With the scale of drone missions ALDOT flies on a regular basis, we’re eager to help them save time while providing superior digital quality with gNext’s automatic processing capability.

We have established a mutually beneficial partnership with ALDOT and look forward to the opportunity to serving them in their future digital inspections,” said Russ Ellis, President at gNext.

Since gNext is drone and sensor agnostic, ALDOT will get the same high-quality results each time they upload their data, no matter which equipment they use.

“As the leader of ALDOT’s UAS Program, I’m always looking for software that can process and deliver the best possible data from our UAS projects to our end users. gNext delivers on those expectations and more,” said J.D. D’Arville, UAS Program Administrator at Alabama Department of Transportation.

Founded in 2018, gNext’s mission is to provide an empowering tool to the infrastructure asset management industry that supports inspectors, engineers, surveyors, and anyone using drone technology to collect asset data in the field, in their efforts to efficiently convert inspection field data into operational intelligence.
