Description

A wireless sensing device recently developed by PI Wang’s group has demonstrated various structural sensing capabilities for bridge applications. In the meantime, a latest robot platform developed by Dr. La’s group at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) demonstrates promising performance navigating on steel bridge members. Marrying the two state-of-the-art developments, this project will produce a magnet-wheeled robot capable of autonomous nondestructive measurement on steel bridge structures.

The platform can provide valuable information for bridge condition assessment. The Martlet wireless sensing device recently developed by PI Wang’s group provides the potential for ultrasonic thickness measurement of steel plates. Meanwhile, the latest robot platform developed by Dr. La’s group at University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) demonstrates promising performance for carrying such a wireless ultrasonic measurement device and navigating on steel bridge members.
