You work for a city highway department. Your job is to drive over its roads, noting their condition to determine which must be repaired, which must be monitored, and which can be left alone for a while. Your mayor suggests that the city should buy a vision system and asks for your opinion. Options include (a) no new system, (b) a system such as the AVT system mentioned earlier, and (c) at higher cost, a system such as the Pavemetrics system. Write a memo to the mayor making and justifying your recommendation.

Program Plan Intro

Vision technologies:

Vision technologies automate the urban such as municipality, city, town, and so on routine inspections.

The vision system is combined with KMS to improve the efficiency of the road safety. Such as,

  • Repaving method helps to prevent the issues.
  • Systematic inspection helps to predict the road repair and schedule the work.
  • Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) offers the high-performance vision cameras. It helps to gather the field data and evaluate the condition of roadway and pavement types such as longitudinal crashes, diagonal crashes, alligator crashes, edge crashes, holes, and rutting.
  • Other vision system such as Pavemetric system.
    • It provides the system utilize the lasers and high-speed cameras to identify the crashes, ruts, and surface corrosion to all types of road surfaces.

Explanation of Solution

Option (a):

There is no new system is added to vision system to identify the road repair and monitored.

  • The vision system helps to make sure the user safety.
  • Repaving method helps to prevent the issues. But it is too expensive system to predict the road repair.
  • Systematic inspection helps to predict the road repair and schedule the work...

Explanation of Solution

Option (b):

The AVT system is used in vision technologies. The AVT stands for Allied Vision Technologies which is an important company for vision camera with high-performance.

  • This vision system helps to gather the field data and evaluate the condition of roadway and pavement types such as longitudinal crashes, diagonal crashes, alligator crashes, edge crashes, holes, and rutting.
  • It provides the less amount of labor and more consistent solution compare to old manual surveys and it also stores the data for future referencing.
  • The AVT system is used in the Florida state includes two cameras...

Explanation of Solution

Option (c):

The Pavemetric system is other vision system to analyses the pavement.

  • It provides the system utilize the lasers and high-speed cameras to identify the crashes, ruts, and surface corrosion to all types of road surfaces.
  • The Pavemetric system is used in the Canada.
    • It provides the system utilize the lasers and high-speed cameras with tradition to identify the crashes, ruts, and surface corrosion to all types of road surfaces...
