AN INDIGENOUS SOLUTION FOR AUTOMATION IN INDIAN ROAD Inventory and Condition Survey

Pavement View Video System

Namita-AkoijamThe Pavement View Video System captures geo-referenced pavement surface videos. This system is normally used to obtain road condition information / database. The videos from this system are often processed with BETQ software products such as SemiDistress, AutoDistress, AutoPotholes, AutoCracks and / or AutoPatches where the size, number and extent of each visible pavement distresses are automatically or semiautomatically measured and reported in a suitable pavement condition inspection / rating form.

Asset View Video System

The Asset View Video System captures right of way (street view) geo-referenced videos. This system is normally used to obtain road asset and inventory information / database. The videos from this system are often processed with software products like SemiAsset where the name, size and number of each visible assets / events are semi-automatically measured and reported in a suitable road inventory inspection / entry form.
