Deep learning and Computer vision research for autonomous inspection of Infrastructure and smart cities monitoring
There is a trend to exploit computer vision and deep learning for inspection of infrastructure in smart cities such as bridges and other civil structures. The challenges of using drones or mobile robot to inspect and detect anomalies are huge but is worth exploring. The recent challenges that deep learning face is the need for enormous and annotated data to learn the visual information. Deep learning replaced mobel - based geometry approaches but still much can be learned from the geometry models. The geometry can give us good hints about metrics needed to select fewer training data for deep learning. Carefully selected training data spanning wider range of the required metric will enable the deep learning model to generalize faster after training with a small number of images.
