Structural Health Monitoring using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones) for Asset Management

The proposed project’s main objective is to solve the complex and very important problem currently being faced by almost all the infrastructure owners. At present the inspection is mostly confined to visual means, which is inadequate and also not reliable due to which, many inaccessible areas of an infrastructure could not be inspected. The solution to this problem lies in providing UAV based and other non-contact assessment techniques at a reduced cost. The use of UAVs can cover large area in a very short duration and can be made autonomous to inspect different structural elements including physically inaccessible. In addition to this, the damage of any structure can be mapped onto a time scale to better maintain the structure as a part of the periodic maintenance program set by the infrastructure owner.
