Complex Bridge Inspections
To improve the quality of inspections and evaluate new inspection technologies, Collins supplements their inspection teams with UAS advancements. This method provides additional documentation that is useful for communicating inspection results, verifying bridge construction and details, and assisting in asset management.
UAS inspections of complex bridges has been an efficient, safe, and cost-effective way to collect and document detailed information. Flying a commercial quality drone purpose-built for inspection improves not only safety but significantly improves the results in the form of improved image quality, one of the greatest benefits of using a high-resolution camera.
