Our expert panel from London Structures Lab and BKWai explained what asset monitoring sensors are available at the moment, how the data needs to be processed to identify residual trends and what opportunities are available to engineers in the future. Through current research and real-time case studies, they also discussed the range of sensing systems available and the circumstances that they can be utilised.
The session identified how engineers can help to justify the pay-back to clients on their investments and provide a thought-provoking insight into what the future of monitoring systems could hold.
