2017 : Urban Road Materials Identification using Narrow Near Infrared Vision System

Prof. Ir. Handayani Tjandrasa M.Sc., Ph.D.


An urban road materials vision system using narrow band near infrared imaging indexes were proposed. This proposed imaging indexes were enhancement for previous work on autonomous multispectral road sensing method. Each urban road material has different near infrared spectral patterns which is as the base of its spectral identification. The new proposed imaging indexes, which using similar formula of NDVI, was normalized with narrow band near infrared spectrum range of 720nm to 1000nm of wavelength, were used to identify concretes, aggregates/sands/rocks, clay, natural dry fibers and bitumen/asphalt that make up most of urban road materials. This paper proposes imaging indexes evaluation from experiment results to identify those urban road materials. There were seven narrow band optical filter sets with the center spectrum at 710nm, 730nm, 750nm, 800nm, 870nm, 905nm and 970nm …
