Image based road condition estimation

Municipalities and Cities face many challenges with infrastructure management. Various assets like traffic signs and the road network need to be maintained.

With the accessibility of mobil cameras like smartphones and modern computer vision algorithms it is now possible to gather and evaluate large amounts of images.

This project focuses on evaluating the road condition based on smartphone images and making this information accessible in a web system. The next steps focus on summarizing the gathered information for a given time interval. Additionally we are aiming to detect, analyze and predict changes in the future condition of the road network.
