Abstract:  This article presents an integrated neural network‐based crack imaging system to classify crack types of digital pavement images. This system includes three neural networks: (1) image‐based neural network, (2) histogram‐based neural network, and (3) proximity‐based neural network. These three neural networks were developed to classify various crack types based on the subimages (crack tiles) rather than crack pixels in digital pavement images. These spatial neural networks were…
