Improved Disaster Management through Automated Damage Assessment using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

The preliminary goal of this research is to develop an automated damage assessment system for the state’s transportation system. The proposed system will have the ability to survey roads and highway and then map damages and obstructions caused by severe storms or inclement weather to an interactive map that conforms to Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) software development standards.
