Bridge monitoring using real-time data and digital twins for Central Europe
Bridges are critical transport infrastructure and need regular maintenance to be safe. Smart systems help with monitoring and allow to optimise maintenance processes. But they carry a high price tag. The BIM4CE project designs a new bridge management solution that will be effective for less money. The solution will be based on already existing technology and scalable. It will pave the way not only to more cost-efficient and safer smart systems in bridge monitoring but also in other sectors.

Currently in the case of older bridges, controls mostly involve manual and labour-intensive procedures that are typically time consuming and very costly. Tragic event of the Genoa bridge in 2018 highlighted the need for a better solution. BIM4CE tackles the challenge of aging bridge infrastructure in the CE region by developing a standardized and digitized European monitoring and maintenance solution for existing bridges that is cost-effective, easy-to-use and scalable.
