Road Damage Detection Based on Unsupervised Disparity Map Segmentation

11 Oct 2019  ·  Rui Fan, Ming Liu ·

This paper presents a novel road damage detection algorithm based on unsupervised disparity map segmentation. Firstly, a disparity map is transformed by minimizing an energy function with respect to stereo rig roll angle and road disparity projection model. Instead of solving this energy minimization problem using non-linear optimization techniques, we directly find its numerical solution. The transformed disparity map is then segmented using Otus's thresholding method, and the damaged road areas can be extracted. The proposed algorithm requires no parameters when detecting road damage. The experimental results illustrate that our proposed algorithm performs both accurately and efficiently. The pixel-level road damage detection accuracy is approximately 97.56%.
