Reliable, digital and non-contact precision measurement system for remote structural health monitoring of any structure

Project description

New tools to monitor buildings and bridges

Structural changes caused by natural ageing or extreme events can seriously impact the condition of buildings, bridges and other constructions, even causing collapse, as in the case of the Morandi bridge in Genova where 43 people were killed. Unfortunately, current solutions for monitoring of structures are expensive and unreliable. This EU-funded VG360 project aims to bring to the market the novel non-contact, full-field VG360 digital system, a patented product from Imetrum. The system uses a digital camera connected to a commercial Robotic Total Station and incorporates intelligent field software algorithms for pattern recognition and digital imaging correlation. Using this equipment, the integrity of any type of structure can be monitored at low cost, remotely and continuously, and with great precision.
