Infrasense Pilots Aerial Surveys with Infrared Thermography and High Resolution Visual Methods to Evaluate Bridge Decks

Infrasense recently completed an internal research effort to assess the feasibility and accuracy of aerial imaging for mapping bridge deck conditions. The results of this study provided support for implementation on upcoming projects. The primary advantage of the aerial method is its efficiency. Data can be collected for hundreds of bridge decks in a single…

Infrasense at Northeastern Universiry

NIST-Sponsored research project to develop vehicle based system system for automatically detecting pavement conditions

Infrasense supported the research team at Northeastern University in developing a survey vehicle system to automatically detect and process surface and subsurface roadway defects. The project, entitled VOTERS (Versatile Onboard Traffic Embedded Roaming Sensors), is part of NIST’s Technology Innovation Program, and focuses on the subsurface sensing of pavements and bridge decks. Some of the…

SHRP2 R06D Research to Identify, Validate, and Implement Methods Capable of Detecting Pavement Delamination

Infrasense contributed to the original research efforts for the SHRP2 project titled, “Advanced Methods to Identify Pavement Delamination (R06D)”. The objective of this project was to identify and validate nondestructive testing technologies that can detect delamination in hot-mix asphalt (HMA), to operate at a reasonable travel speed, and cover a full lane width. Most recently,…

Aerial Infrared Thermography

PILOT PROJECT: Aerial Infrared Thermography Used to Evaluate Wisconsin Bridge Decks

Infrared thermography is one of our primary testing technologies for Wisconsin bridge deck condition evaluations, and we are always seeking ways to improve our testing methods. In 2017, this research really took flight – literally! Infrasense has also been working with a national aerial imaging company to collect and analyze infrared and visual imagery from…
