The recognition rate has reached over 95%. This year, we also developed the innovative inspection equipment of “road environment inspection vehicle”, which collects images through 12 high-precision cameras and converts the data values into elevation models and orthophotos to achieve automatic defect detection and dimensional measurement, etc. (pothole size and depth, rutting area depth measurement), and combines the surveyed data with GIS platform and visual management of street map information to grasp more immediately and accurately as the basis for subsequent maintenance operations to provide the public with a comfortable, smooth, convenient and safe road.
