Improving detection of asphalt distresses with deep learning-based diffusion model for intelligent road maintenance

Abstract: Research on road infrastructure structural health monitoring is critical due to the increasing problem of deteriorated conditions. The traditional approach to pavement distress detection relies on human-based visual recognition, a time-consuming and labor-intensive method. While Deep Learning-based computer vision systems are the most promising approach, they face the challenges of reduced performance due to the scarcity of labeled data due, high annotation costs misaligned with engineering applications, and limited instances of minority defects. This paper introduces a novel generative diffusion model for data augmentation, creating synthetic images of rare defects. It also investigates methods to enhance image quality and reduce production time. Compared to Generative Adversarial Networks, the optimal configuration excels in reliability, quality and diversity. After incorporating synthetic images into the training of our pavement distress detector, YOLOv5, its mean average precision has been enhanced. This computer-aided system enhances recognition and labelling efficiency, promoting intelligent maintenance and repairs.
