AI-Powered Pavement Maintenance

Leveraging a partnership with Bentley Systems, Benesch experts are revolutionizing how we utilize digital technologies to streamline crack detection processes on runway pavement.

A Digital Twin model is created via drone imagery and then fed through Pavement Crack Detector software to identify and analyze cracks. Powered by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, the new technology improves efficiency and accuracy of data collection activities while reducing inspectors’ exposure to environmental hazards and interruptions to area traffic.

The AI/ML Driven Pavement Crack Detector workflow received Bentley’s Founders’ Honors as part their global 2023 Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure.
