Bridge Monitoring in the Internet of Things

The permanent observation of infrastructure and terrain is an important task field of modern engineering geodesy, ensuring stability and functional reliability of buildings such as bridges. Open-source software, rapid prototyping technologies, and the emerging Internet of Things can help to facilitate the realisation of modern sensor networks while lowering installation and operating costs. The talk will show the application of the OpenADMS software for deformation monitoring of two motorway bridges in Lower-Saxony in the last two years.
