Structural Health Monitoring

Structural Health Monitoring

Our SHM systems use a network of internal and external sensor to assess the current state of health of a structure. We use advanced processing techniques for a real time analysis of the big data acquired by continuous operating sensors.

Data Acquisiton

Data Acquisiton

We use modern sensors like laser scanners, robotic total stations and various types of fiber optic sensors to obtain high resolution data of small scale and large scale objects. To obtain best performance these sensors are steered with our own control software.

Sensor Development and Calibration

Sensor Development and Calibration

We develop fully automated calibration facilities in our measurement lab. These are used in our projects but are also available for industrial partners.

Welcome at the Institute of Engineering Geodesy and Measurement Systems (IGMS)

IGMS develops, installs and operates monitoring systems for large civil structures. Our solutions based on geodetic and fiber optic sensors enable the early detection of structural deterioration. We can determine surface deformations and internal strain changes with accuracies of a few micrometers. These accuracies are verified by the unique calibration facilities in our measurement lab. We are proud that our research and industrial projects increase public safety and help to build more sustainable infrastructure.
