RockSee: Video Image Measurements of Physical Features to Aid in Highway Rock Cut Characterization

Abstract

Maintaining highway rock cuts for the safety of the motoring public from the risk and consequence of falling rock is an enormous task for State Departments of Transportation. The amount of work to even evaluate and prioritize the remediation effort is prohibitive. To facilitate the prioritization of remediation efforts, a new rock fall hazard rating system has been developed for Missouri highways. To make the process much more efficient, video logs are used screen the rock cuts, parameters used in the system are measured on video images, and data is automatically transferred to a GIS system.
