We’re helping to keep Britain moving!
- ~ 250,000 miles of roads
- ~ 50 road tunnels
- ~ 20,000 miles of railway track, and,
- ~ 30,000 rail tunnels, bridges and viaducts
Then there are the auxiliary structures such as drain covers and manhole covers, and there are over 700 manhole covers in the London area alone!
All of these require inspection and maintenance to ensure they are undamaged, safe, and fit for purpose. Traditionally, inspection has been conducted by human operators aided by defect detection equipment. However, this inherently puts operators at risk from passing traffic, electrocution, and more.
I3DR is providing stereo vision systems that can be robotically mounted and deployed remotely, limiting risk to humans. Stereo vision offers a more robust, more cost-effective solution to remote inspection than other 3D imaging technologies such as time-of-flight and LiDAR.
