Automated detection of pavement cracking

Québec (Canada-Québec), 13 August 2006

This workshop was organised by PIARC Technical Committee 4.2 chaired by Michel Boulet (France).

Objectives

The main objective was to give experts, researchers, suppliers, and users access to the latest information and an opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience pertaining to the development and evaluation of automated or semi-automated crack detection systems.
