Bridge & Traffic Monitoring

On a frequently used city bridge connecting the city center with the highway, a sensor system with wireless gateway was installed. Shocks of passing vehicles put the bridge in motion. Algorithms on the gateway computer calculate the bridges Eigenfrequencies and harmonics, which reveals constant information about the bridge's state and condition. Additional sensor nodes capturing acoustic emission are able to count vehicles and axes as well as check for axis loads and types of vehicles.

​​Conditions monitored:

Sensors used: smartPREDICT Ethernet / i2xµGT

Setup: (array of) smartPREDICT + additional i2xµGT - Storage & Gateway to Cloud

Benefits:

   •  Remote and continuous information about bridge condition

   •  Traffic information: number of cars in specific periods, vehicle types and axial loads
