Pavement distress images are typical high dimensional nonlinear data. Manifold learning algorithms can find the intrinsic characteristic hidden in the distress images, which helps to better recognize them. Unlike most of manifold learning algorithms, multilayer autoencoders have solved the data reconstructed problem through building a bi-directional mapping between the high dimensional data and the low dimensional data. An automatic pavement distress image recognition method based on multilayer… CONTINUE READING
