Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 54-14. Artificial Intelligence Applications for Automated Pavement Condition Evaluation

The objective of this synthesis is to document state DOT current practices of automated pavement distress identification and AI (ML/DL) technologies for pavement condition evaluation. Information to be gathered includes (but is not limited to): (1) Requirements for automated pavement distress identification; (2) Various applications of pavement distress condition information; (3) Types of agency decision-making supported by pavement condition data; (4) Artificial intelligence (e.g., machine learning, deep learning) technologies, tools, and models currently being applied to pavement distress detection and classification and to pavement condition evaluation; and (5) Ground truth / reference / benchmark data used in AI-technique development, training, and evaluation.
