Automated Pavement Cracking Assessment Equipment - State of the Art

The type, scope (length) and severity (opening) of cracks in the pavement are essential for road network managers. This information is used to qualify the condition of the pavement and identify the source of surface deterioration. Despite the fact that many highway companies and authorities have invested time and money in designing systems that can automatically report and analyse this type of information, data collection is still primarily done manually throughout the world.
