With sensors and meticulous algorithms at the core, a new Italian digital initiative will enhance the security and lifespan of bridges in Italy and Europe. The project draws on more than 20 years of engineering expertise from the Storebælt Bridge in Denmark.
14 specialists, 10 intense hours and a unique insight into measurements and data from the Storebælt Bridge. In May, Sund & Bælt in partnership with Rambøll organised a Hackathon for the first time. This is a form of competition that cultivates new and innovative ideas as to how we can use existing data from the Storebælt Bridge to make maintenance more efficient and improve safety.
Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), Sund & Bælt is able to track where maintenance is required on the Storebælt Bridge. The technology is also being tested on the Lillebælt, Vejle Fjord and Øresund Bridges. The aim is to share the solution across the world.
