North-West Coast Underwater Bridge Inspections project
Veris Australia performed underwater bridge inspections for the Department of State Growth in North-West Tasmania. This was to assess any changes in the riverbed by capturing high resolution point clouds of riverbeds and comparing to previous datasets. Veris utilised the latest remote boat technology, together with several sensors including multibeam sonar, inertial navigation systems, and 3D modelling. This allowed the data to be collected in a much safer manner than the previously used dive inspections.
The result was delivered in an online 3D experience, allowing for measurement and markup of defects, and sharing of data with other stakeholders. The judges said it was a great case study of constantly looking at the problem to find the next solution to gain more insights for the client.
