Progressing Bridge Structural Integrity With Drones

What Is A Drone Bridge Inspection?

A drone bridge inspection is an innovative technique that utilises drones or remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to perform a comprehensive assessment of bridge structures. These drones capture high-resolution imagery and construct 3D models of the bridge, offering a safer, more efficient, and cost-effective alternative to traditional methods.

They eliminate human exposure to hazardous situations such as traffic, extreme heights, or water. Moreover, drones can effortlessly access difficult-to-reach areas and provide detailed insights into the bridge’s condition. Their high-resolution imaging capability ensures accurate identification of defects and structural deficiencies. Safety is significantly enhanced as fewer inspectors are exposed to risks.

Furthermore, drones facilitate continuous monitoring, effectively tracking progress throughout bridge rehabilitation projects, and providing comparative data. Consequently, due to their advantages in safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness, drone bridge inspections are increasingly becoming the industry standard.

Drone Bridge Inspection Service Overview

Comprehensive Bridge Surveys, Above and Below

Remote Inspection Of Pier Caps, Headers, Abutments and Wing Walls

The comprehensive inspection of pier caps, headers, abutments, and wing walls is a critical aspect of our drone-based bridge surveys.

These structural components bear significant loads and endure substantial environmental exposure, making them susceptible to damage over time.

Our drones, equipped with state-of-the-art imaging technology, navigate and scrutinise these elements in close detail, revealing any latent damage, wear, or structural inconsistencies.

Precision Defined in Drone Inspections

Parapets, Fascia and Soffit Inspections

The advanced maneuverability of our drones makes it possible to perform detailed inspections of parapets, fascia, and soffits. By closely examining these critical components, our drones can identify and document any issues that could potentially affect the bridge’s stability and safety.

Ultra high-resolution images, LiDAR and 3D models facilitate the identification of potential points of failure, ensuring timely and effective maintenance.
