Civil engineers use artificial intelligence to classify pavement cracks

Civil engineers use artificial intelligence to classify pavement cracks

Researchers are using artificial intelligence to classify various types of pavement cracks, such as these examples from Missouri roadways. Traffic engineers could have a smarter way of identifying asphalt problems and prioritizing pavement projects, thanks to cutting-edge research from Mizzou Engineering. The team is training a machine to automatically classify types of cracks and potholes [...]
Researchers study effectiveness of rumble strips in work zones

Researchers study effectiveness of rumble strips in work zones

Mizzou Engineers are helping state transportation officials investigate the effectiveness of temporary rumble strips in work zones. Rumble strips are safety features placed over the road to alert motorists by causing an audible vibration transmitted from vehicle wheels. The Missouri Department of Transportation uses them ahead of work zones, said Henry Brown, principal investigator of [...]

Mizzou Engineer working to improve methods to detect geological, manmade underground features

Left undetected, sinkholes, caves and other underground features can wreak havoc on building and road foundations. But finding those voids is challenging because of varying topography and soil conditions. Now, a Mizzou Engineer is working with Marshall University in West Virginia to improve methods to identify geological and manmade features dozens of feet below the [...]

Mizzou Engineer studies perceptions of autonomous transportation

Autonomous mobility services include public transportation, as well as self-driving cars. Photo by Brock Wegner | Unsplash Before the public will fully embrace autonomous mobility services, companies need to increase people’s trust in the technology. That’s one take-away from a case study Assistant Professor Sabreena Anowar and colleagues conducted in Singapore. Anowar, who has joint [...]
