Critical Infrastructure

The solutions offered by Reco allow you to carry out inspections on structures located in critical areas in safety

The solutions proposed by Reco:

A. Non-destructive inspections
Reco3.26 technology is suitable for determining the areas with homogeneous mechanical characteristics and therefore obtaining a mapping of the materials (carbon, concrete, etc.).
Variations in ultrasound propagation speed inform us about the mechanical-elastic characteristics of the material, the level of homogeneity, quality, possible deterioration and the presence of any gaps or inclusions. The presence of imperfections or inhomogeneities in the body in fact causes the onset of scattering phenomena that occur with the presence of spurious echoes, reverberations and, in general, attenuation of the sound wave.

Reco3.26 transforms ultrasonic data into images by applying its skills in computer vision to these. This survey methodology is particularly useful for monitoring the structures, the effectiveness of remediation interventions over time and the improvement of the mechanical characteristics of the vehicle. This technological approach allows to accurately estimate the mechanical characteristics of the investigated structure.

B. Inspections with drones
Critical infrastructures (such as bridges, viaducts) are large and complex structures: monitoring and control operations require time and expensive specialized equipment; inspections pose significant risks to the safety of operators due to the very nature of conventional operations. Consequently, in order to provide safe access to the facility, it is necessary for operators to carry out training courses.

The Reco3.26 technology allows, through the use of drones equipped with video cameras, to generate 3D models of the investigated structure.
The latter are used for the identification of defects through the use of computer vision techniques, in order to accurately recognize a variety of types of defects with an accuracy of less than a millimeter.

All Reco 3.26 systems can be easily integrated into the customer's pre-existing infrastructure.
