UAS Image-Based Point Clouds to 3D BrIM: Deep Semantic Segmentation

The mobility of people and goods is highly dependent on the health of a nation’s transportation system. However, the U.S. infrastructure has been repeatedly graded in poor condition (ASCE, 2017), and the budget available to either repair or replace these structures is limited (USDOT, 2017). Timely inspection and effective maintenance of bridges is crucial to avoid any issues that may have a negative impact on public mobility. However, current bridge inspection practice inhibits the collection and analysis of information regarding the status of bridges in an efficient and timely manner. This problem is further exacerbated by the large number of bridges in the U.S. and the limited number of inspectors available.
