Innovative Technology for Health Assessment and Damage Mitigation of Structures (I-HEAL)

The objective of the project was to continuously assess the dynamic parameters of the structure with an optical camera using intelligent algorithms.

A technology is being developed for continuously assessing the dynamic parameters of the civil structure under study using real-time vision based algorithms. A non-invasive approach would be used for continuous health monitoring of bridges. At present, the algorithms have been developed and are being tested at SERC Chennai and BITS Pilani. The object detection and beam vibration sensing are shown in Fig 1.
