Abstract

Post-event inspection of bridges after unexpected events (e.g. an earthquake) is an extremely important step in the path toward damage assessment and functionality restoration. We present how a team of structural, mechanical, electrical, and computer engineers are designing and deploying a variant on sensor networking to address this. The work will present a hybrid approach to sensor array powering and interrogation, where both power and interrogation commands are conveyed via autonomous vehicles. A prototype system described here is demonstrated on a full-scale bridge.
