USEngineering Solutions has developed the BridgeWatch® bridge-monitoring software application to enable transportation professionals to proactively monitor, in real-time, their valuable infrastructure to prevent and protect against hazardous conditions for private, public, and commercial transportation.
BridgeWatch collects and processes real-time data at regular intervals from weather and hydrologic sources, meters and gauges, and other sensing devices. Data comparisons are then performed with internal client bridge databases to alert, when appropriate, critical personnel via any electronic medium (cell phones, pagers, email, fax, etc.) when bridges are experiencing a dangerous or critical event. BridgeWatch can also be utilized as a hands-on training and scenario tool for emergency evacuation or security drills with the system’s archiving and event simulation capabilities.
USEngineering Solutions is the owner of U.S. Patent No. 6,862,528 entitled “Monitoring System and Process for Structural Instabilities due to Environmental Processes,” issued March 1, 2005.
