Bridge monitoring systems provide the information required to support a safe transportation system. By continuously monitoring movements, vibrations and structural changes of bridges it is possible to identify potential failure modes. And, as infrastructure ages, maintenance is more critical to keep the bridge viable, a monitoring system will improve safety and reduce operations costs by optimizing the maintenance cycle.
Data from accelerometers and strain gauges can be combined with data from atmospheric and displacement sensors to display and analyze the oscillation, torsion and vibration characteristics of the bridge. Real-time information and alerts ensure people stay safe.
