In recent years many European cities are spending increasing amounts to rehabilitating their construction infrastructure. It is expected that this trend will continue with the requirement for major investment in this inspection of deteriorating structures. Automated and integrated systems for damage identification and structural assessment that are based on picture analysis can be used to increase the speed and accuracy of the inspection and evaluation process and lower the cost. To prove the feasibility of the above the objective of this work is to produce an integrated and automated detection, classification, structural assessment and rehabilitation method selection system for sewers based on the processing of CCTV inspection tapes. If successful, the work will be adapted to fit the needs of CCTV inspection of boreholes, shafts, gas and oil pipelines and other construction sectors.
