Read our special supplement about smart technology in the bridge industry; flying robots that can build 3D networks using lightweight cables; autonomous equipment for doing the dirty work in paint removal, and systems designed to control large-scale equipment for launching and lifting massive elements during bridge construction. We report on new equipment that is being trialled for rapid bridge deck inspection, and other innovations that are in development. We also investigate the world of 3D and 4D information which is now routinely feeding into other aspects such as temporary works and fabrication.
