Using NVIDIA Metropolis To Retrieve Unpaid Vehicle Tax

With more than 10 million residents, Jakarta isn’t just one of the world’s most populous cities, it’s also one of the most congested — with 13 million motorcycles, 4.4 million cars and millions more trucks and vans. The costs are heavy for Indonesia’s capital, including lost productivity, wasted fuel and air pollution. The city government faces a related cost, as well: unpaid road tax – to the tune of 2 trillion Indonesian rupiah (US $142 million) every year. 

This lost revenue puts a gaping hole in the government’s budget for healthcare, education and other services. But recently the city gave a green light to a smart city initiative that, using NVIDIA AI technology, already recovered 140 billion Indonesian rupiah (nearly $10 million) in a four-month trial run.
