This project aims to investigate the feasibility of using an integrated package of IoT, computer vision, and machine learning technologies to support smart bridge health monitoring and prediction.
Integrated IoT, computer vision, and machine learning technologies offer a promising supplement to physical bridge health assessment particularly in remote regional contexts which can be costly, time consuming and unsafe to inspect. Conducting regular, efficient, and reliable bridge health monitoring is essential for the long-term protection of valuable road assets through timely maintenance responses.
The research from this project will produce a proof-of-concept to demonstrate the efficacy and feasibility of an integrated package of technologies for first-level bridge health screening and early warning system, reducing the need for traditional physical inspections and instrumentation.
The benefits of the project include contributing to reducing maintenance, operation costs and risk, and achieving a safe transport infrastructure network, ultimately, increasing productivity.
