Performing A Better Bridge Inspection
How To Save Our InfrastructureMarch 19th, 2017 Author: Doug Thaler
UPDATING 50-Year-Old Antiquated
Infrastructure Inspection Methods with Robotics
The current methods used to inspect roads, cables and bridges are painfully antiquated. This means high labor costs, slow subjective results, and high margins for error. Margins for error that can endanger public safety and cost billions of dollars in emergency repairs and untimely replacements.
IPC’s patented robotic inspection services exceed federal and state requirements are safer for the inspectors and the public are proven over 700% more accurate than current methods. Their robotic inspections for bridge inspections and high mast light poles fall within the DOT’s current maintenance inspection budget with much greater accuracy than ever seen before. By providing the DOT (Department of Transportation) with quantitative results they are better able to allocate their limited budgets to maintain assets in order of necessity.
The Way It’s Done Today
*Dangerous, Limited Data, Road Closures, Subjective Results.
The Way Forward With IPC
*Improved Safety, 360 Degree Field Of View, No Lane Closures, Quantitative Results with Actionable Items, Major Cost Savings!!
IPC gives the Department of Transportation the information they need to help properly budget & maintain the infrastructure. This helps keep our infrastructure safe and extend the service life of our infrastructure assets resulting in billions in infrastructure savings. See comparison below.

Daytime, No lane closure or bucket
1000 times more accurate.
A New Age Of Safety!
Think of the day-to-day inconvenience of road maintenance. Road and bridge closures for routine inspections are a thing of the past thanks to IPC’s robotic technologies.
Our goal at Infrastructure Preservation Corporation is to find early stage corrosion and deterioration in structures before it compromises the integrity of those structures and puts the public at risk. By finding and being able to repair early stage deterioration, we can keep the public safe, better budget for repairs and save billions in untimely asset replacements.
