3D imaging estimates pothole volume


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
