Advancements in technology, computer programs, inspection equipment, and regulation has made the process of structural inspection through the use of imaging equipment a feasible and attractive option when confronted with safety or access confinements. Often times in bridge inspection, conditions exist that put inspectors in hazardous situations. Additionally, many bridge or structure elements requiring inspection can be very difficult to reach or asses using access equipment or procedures such as aerial lifts, snooper trucks, rope access, commercial diving, etc. The use of imaging equipment can provide inspectors with the same level confidence of a visual inspection while reducing or eliminating potential risk of hazardous conditions.
