Application of Computer Vision to Crack Detection of Concrete Structure

Tung-Ching Su
Abstract—Most important civil infrastructures are made of concrete, so accurate information by routine inspection is necessary for structure maintenance. Sometimes temporarily erected scaffoldings are needed for infrastructure inspections. Bridge inspection for example, the inspectors must stand on the platform to examine the underside of a bridge, but such a procedure is risky. At present, several inspection systems coupled with Charge Coupled Devices (CCD) cameras have been developed and applied to infrastructure inspections in order to reduce the danger of accidents to the human inspectors. This paper proposes a computer vision technique based on CCD images to attempt to automatically detect cracks in concrete structure. The experimental result indicates that the optimal accuracies of 90% and 84% could be achieved for the training and testing samples, respectively
