Using the data gathered with drones, in combination with corrosion assessment, contractors and inspectors can get an all-around, in-depth look at the state of bridges and concrete infrastructure. It also keeps workers out of harm’s way, amounts to considerable cost savings, and most importantly, it’s helping our state engineers, and contractors do a critical job: repairing and replacing aging infrastructure across the country. Drone are a great way for monitoring purposes to predict the structural and functional performance of a complex bridge. Application of robotics has changed the inspection of various framework assessments such as bridges, towers.
IG Drones are used to collect aerial views of for example a bridge to detect any kind of minor or major decline like cracks, corrosion that are not easy to see from a distance. some of the benefits of bridge inspection are it Takes less time as compared to traditional methods to perform complete inspection task, life risks thus assure safety to the public and the inspection crew, obtains more accurate data based on provided safety standards and requirements, Data can be analysed in real-time and stored for later use.
