3D imaging estimates pothole volume

May 21, 2014

When it comes to road repairs relating to potholes, an accurate estimate of the amount of material required to fill the potholes is important, since a lack of the correct amount will lead to inferior compaction while an excess quantity can lead to over-banding at the edge, and material wastage. In order to provide an accurate, automated measurement of the volume of a pothole, a team of researchers have developed a 3D system that uses the Microsoft Kinect to perform pothole metrology and volume estimation. >>>Read more
