John Leander, from CNets subsidiary IoTBridge, presented the project iBridge on this year’s highlight for the steel construction industry, Stålbyggnadsdagen 2021, which was held 28th October in Stockholm.
iBridge aims to develop and demonstrate a full-scale digital instrumentation of bridges. The purpose is to complement manual inspections and to accelerate the industrialization of digital measurement and inspection services. The overall goal is to automate and make available existing knowledge that can reduce the costs for bridge management while guaranteeing safety.
Sweden municipalities alone manage more than 29,000 bridges, in addition to privately owned bridges and bridges owned by Swedish business and industry.
