What is bridge inspection using a drone? Using UAVs for routine and emergency bridge inspections reduces turnaround time and provides more accurate results. 

Structural deficiencies and functional inadequacies in bridges are reasons why a bridge may become a danger to the public. These problems develop from time to time due to tremors and vibrations caused by bridge traffic. 

Attrition and the need to maintain structural integrity and safety make the inspection routine. Bridges, especially high bridges, take a lot of time to inspect. The process is also risky and may be inadequate when done manually.

Bridge inspection using drones eliminates some of the challenges and limitations experienced in a manual inspection. At GIS Drones, we offer the highest quality services for bridge inspection. 

Why Choose Us for Bridge Inspection Using Drones?

Choosing a service provider is a critical success factor for drone asset inspection. The following is what we offer makes us the best in the field. 

Accuracy

Our findings have a 99.9% accuracy rate. This high rate is because our drones use cutting-edge artificial intelligence applications and machine learning. The drones mimic human decision-making and transmit only the most pertinent information. 

The obtained information’s accuracy enables our clients to make informed decisions quickly. In bridge inspection, precision or lack thereof may mean the difference between life and death. 

Cutting Edge Technology 

Our drone fleet consists of custom-made vehicles fitted with the latest technology. These drones are from DJI, and manufacturers fit them with super high-resolution cameras and other payloads as necessary. The Phase One Payload 50 MP and 100 MP camera is one of our favorites in bridge inspection.

It is an easy-to-use, plug-and-play device that produces high-resolution images. Its sensor is one and three-quarters larger than that of ordinary cameras. This makes it more sensitive, which is one reason why the pictures it takes are so fine. 

Furthermore, the P3 Payload comes with lenses ranging from 35mm – 150mm, which allow it to focus effectively over varying distances. Photogrammetry equipment such as Zenmuse P1 also helps to give a precise, full image of the bridge. The camera has the Smart Oblique Projection feature that enables us to render the bridge in 2D or 3D CGI.

Excellent Drone Pilots and Technical Support Staff 

Our team comprises excellent drone pilots with knowledge and experience in bridge inspection. Their experience allows them to pick out the most important points to check. The pilots’ ability to determine the most important aspects of the inspection makes the inspectors’ work easier. 

GIS hardware and software engineers provide the necessary support. Their constant presence and engagement ensure our operations run smoothly.  

Fast Data Acquisition 

Our efficient drone pilots, high-quality drone technology, and technical support teams all work together to deliver quickly. Data acquisition is faster than any of our competitors; we give you actionable information almost in real time. 

When data needs to be analyzed, our teams work day and night to sift through it using machine learning tools. You are guaranteed well-organized data fast when you use our services. 

Excellent Visual Aids 

An inspector doesn’t get to see the bridge directly when you use a drone for inspection. To eliminate any associated limitations, you need to have super-high-quality images from the drone. Such images enable you to assess the bridge’s condition as accurately as you would have inspected it in person. 

We use custom-made DJI drones, which have extra-high-resolution cameras. These cameras take high-quality images of the bridge. These images give bridge inspectors everything they need to make the right decision about the bridge in question. 

We may present the data as graphs, pie charts, and other graphics. These graphics are designed to make sense and facilitate decision-making at a glance. 

Reduced Equipment Down-Time

Regular equipment downtime can increase the turnaround time for drone bridge inspections. So, it’s important for a company to keep their drones in good shape so they don’t bother their customers. 

At GIS Drones, We offer the best drone facade inspection. We have both software and hardware engineers on staff. These specialists are available at a moment’s notice to repair, reprogram, upgrade, or customize our drones for a specific task. When maintenance is done right, there is less downtime and the drones are ready to do their jobs.  

Focussed Client Service

Our drone pilots are excellent, and they have a lot of experience in bridge inspection. They can pick out some defects on the bridges based on their observations over the years. Nevertheless, their understanding of bridges is not as good as that of bridge maintenance professionals.  

Our pilots, engineers, and the rest of the team work seamlessly with inspectors. This collaboration ensures the pilots’ actions are targeted to meet inspection needs. We encourage the bridge inspectors who work for our clients to take the lead so that we can meet their needs exactly. 

We have a well-trained, professional customer service staff that handles bookings and scheduling. This team is friendly, and they bend over backwards for your convenience.

FAQs

A pilot flies the drone around the bridge, searching for potential maintenance issues. The drone should be equipped with high-quality imaging technology, from which the inspector can see what the drone sees. It is from the drone’s images that one establishes the bridge’s state.

Aerial inspections give you a bird’s-eye view of the bridge, allowing you to see every part in relation to the whole bridge. It helps you identify defects and anomalies and formulate a maintenance plan.

You should inspect bridges every two years on a regular schedule. Nevertheless, inspectors stay on the lookout in case there is something unusual. Suspected defaults can necessitate an emergency inspection.
