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 [...]

Using Big Data to Improve Traffic Flow

Using Big Data to Improve Traffic Flow

The digital sign flashes “Accident Ahead – Proceed With Caution” as drivers head along Interstate 70 in the St. Louis region. That usually means long delays for drivers as traffic builds up behind the accident. This also means a potentially serious accident that requires an immediate response from emergency personnel. However, those personnel may be […]
