Real-Time Bridge Monitoring allows to verify in real-time (with a delay of 1 hour due to local server delay) the status of a number of piers of a bridge (in this case the Borgoforte bridge on Po river in Italy) based on some physical parameters, including:

  • wind speed [m/s]
  • wind direction [°]
  • water level [m asl]
  • water rate [m3/s]
  • river bed level [m asl]
  • presence of debris
  • presence and type of traffic
  • material of the bridge
  • structural parameters


Users that could use the system are:

  • External users
    • ​anyone who wants to access the site without having to log​
  • Operators
    • the persons responsible for the monitoring of the bridge​
  • Engineers
    • the persons responsible for the monitoring of the bridge and the definition of the structural model that describes the bridge and the forces acting on it​
  • Administrator
    • the person responsible for adding new users (with the right role) and for edit or delete existing users


Real-Time Bridge Monitoring also provides access to different types of users with different roles; they could perform different tasks such as:

  • view the current state
  • view the historical states
  • view the MN domain
  • add/edit/delete users
  • edit some parameters
  • view some statistics
  • launch the alarm
