AEROBI project takes part in 1st SENSKIN workshop on 8th November 2017
1st SENSKIN Workshop, Monitoring Systems for Resilient and Sustainable Bridges, held on 8th November 2017 in Brussels
In a lively and fruitful discussion, around 40 participants from different countries provided valuable input to the work of the project at this meeting. The aim of this first workshop was to analyse the functional and operational requirements of the SENSKIN system based on the needs of bridge owners and operators, as well as the methodology of the SENSKIN monitoring system. To facilitate and enhance knowledge exchange between practitioners in the field of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), a number of systems already being used and developed within the project context were also presented.
The third system, Aerial Robotic System for In-Depth Bridge Inspection by Contact (AEROBI), was presented by Adewole Adesiyun from FEHRL. The work is part of the AEROBI project (H2020 project). The system adapts and integrates recent research results in aerial manipulators, intelligent control in robotics, computer vision and sensing, in an innovative, integrated, aerial robotic system with a specialised multi-joint arm that will scan concrete beams and piers in a bridge for potential cracks on the surface or concrete swelling or spalling.
