The visual inspection of vehicles for external damages is a major activity in many industries worldwide. Not only does the detection of abnormalities depend on the assessor’s expertise, this process is also time-intensive as it must be carried out manually. Recent developments in the area of object detection however provide the opportunity to provide a more automated solution to this problem. While fully supervised learning has already proven successful, this study investigates the potential use of semi-supervised learning-enabled with saliency propagation for vehicle damage detection. In a direct comparison, the semi-supervised learning was not able to achieve the same accuracy rates as fully supervised models, can however accomplish a precision of 56.3% when using labelled data.
