21 November 2019

Barcelona, Spain

sponsored by PULSe


funded by Horizon 2020

H2020 logo

Hosted at Smart City Expo

The meeting will focus on the technologies providing information about expected and unexpected changes relevant for infrastructure management and structural health monitoring, therefore assisting in improving the environmental footprints. The meeting is dedicated to the increasing demand for knowledge about the structural health of the infrastructure assets such as, e.g. tunnels and bridges in order to increase safety demands and arrive from fixed time service interventions to a model of service based on their actual needs. Technologies for temperature monitoring of power lines and generators that provide information on their structural health based on the thermal profile will be discussed as well.

Visit us also at the booth: Hall P2 , Level 0, Street A, Stand 160.
