Recent developments in robotics and the associated fields of computer vision and sensors pave the floor for automated robotic solutions, exploitable in the wider field of inspection of civil infrastructures and particularly transportation tunnels, the latter ageing urgently requiring inspection and assessment. Currently, tunnel inspections are performed via visually by human operators. This can result into slow, labour expensive and subjective process often requiring lane shutdown during the inspection, parameters that need to be lowered while having safety requirements and tunnel uptimes increasing.
