Robot-assisted Bridge Inspection With the development of science and technology robots have become a part of several challenging professions. Now robots are assisting in the difficult and risky jobs like bridge inspection. In past, bridge failures and accidents have claimed many lives and therefore, various new technologies have been developed for the sake of safety of inspection crew and public during bridge inspection and maintenance. Infrastructure Preservation Corporation (IPC), a trusted name in road and bridge inspection services has implemented these technologies in its services which has benefited our clients a lot in terms of effectiveness, safety, and money savings. What advantages do you get with Robotic Inspection methods?  It takes over labor-intensive jobs and does the job efficiently.  It can easily perform all the life-risking tasks.  It completes the job in fraction of time taken by bridge inspector.  It finishes the inspection job with perfection and provide accurate result.  Use of robots in the inspection causes fewer problems to the traffic and general public.  The inspection results become subjective.  The minor cracks and faults in the bridges which used to get unnoticed in traditional inspection methods are easily detected with robotic Inspection.  It costs less than conventional inspection methods. What are the new technologies used in Robotic Bridge Inspection? 1. Drones:


Also known as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Drones are used in the bridge Inspection for getting an aerial view of a bridge to detect cracks or faults. It makes bridge inspection safer for the Inspectors and also the general public. It provides a more accurate report of inspection in form of an easy to understand 3D map of the bridge. An experienced bridge inspector can easily identify the problem areas and generate an accurate condition assessment report for the bridge owners in short time. 2. Multifunctional robotic crawler: This technology is developed for inspection of stay cables in Suspension bridges. The robot is customized to move over stay cables to inspect any deterioration by using cameras. The robot is designed to work under any environmental conditions and it provide real time data along with coordinates of the deterioration which helps in repairing and monitoring purposes. It has simple and quick installation procedure and also a safe-landing mechanism in case of emergency situations. 3. Infrared Thermography (IRT): It is a robotic inspection method for evaluating bridge to detect cracks and faults in concrete. It works on a vehicle-based system which uses an advanced and high-resolution thermographic camera and computer-based video data acquisition system to improve detection rates and accuracy in the location and size of the defected areas.
