UtterBerry sensors are miniature, wireless, ultra-low power sensors combined with artificial intelligence, specifically designed for infrastructure monitoring.
Fibre optics pile testing
The engineering consultancy Wentworth House Partnership wanted to perform Static Pile Load Testing on a bored pile at a construction site in London. They asked CSIC to install fibre optic strain sensors to generate a continuous strain profile and capture the behaviour of the pile during load testing and provide information about the load transfer.
Fibre optic strain sensors for structural health monitoring
CSIC’s fibre optic technologies have been applied to provide insights into structural performance and design, to monitor the construction process and for structural health monitoring. Applications have included understanding sprayed concrete linings in Crossrail’s London Liverpool Street Station and instrumenting concrete tunnels in CERN and piles and buttress walls at the London Bridge Station redevelopment.
CSattAR Photogrammetric Monitoring in tunnels
CSattAR has been used to monitor the convergence, rotation, displacement and surface condition of a number of tunnels in the UK and abroad.
Geo-spatial mapping of road surfaces
CSIC has developed a novel method of geo-spatially mapping the condition of roads using highly-accurate and cost-effective sensing technologies that identify and prioritise defects in our roads.
