There has been significant advancement in the development of Automated crack detection for pavement condition over the past five to six years. For one such development, is the emergence of Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS) developed by Pavemetrics and National Optics Institute (INO).

In partnership with Fugro Roadware, PMS has commissioned a new vehicle ARAN equipped with a Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS).
