Abstract

This paper aims to show the State of Art for Smart Automation Systems dedicated to Infrastructures and Constructions (SASIC) The first part is devoted to exploit the topic of sensors: The paper highlights show some new sensor technologies might be adopted in these areas giving much more reliability to bridges and infrastructures. Bosch Rexroth produce a wide range of accelerometers dedicated to several applications. The concept is to develop dedicated smart sensors able to measure and communicate with a host computer and/or a supervisor system which will opportunely act. It would be possible to manufacture tailor made software able to fit with the new requirements every day more difficult to reach. Also for video cameras and accelerometers it would be possible to create enhanced devices able to give much more reliability to civil constructions. Having these kind of sensors available it would be possible to understand whether or not recovery energy through the movement of the bridge is feasible or it is not convenient. The Second part is dedicated to actuators: thanks to actuators developed by Bosch Rexroth, it would be possible to catch the movement and transforming it in electrical energy able to recharge the battery used by the sensors installed on the bridge. Of course Bosch Rexroth got a lot of devices able to transform the movement in electrical power able at least to charge the battery of the devices installed on the construction. In case the construction doesn’t move, it would be possible to recover energy by solar cells positioned close to the sensors. The use of anthropomorphous robot or of an automatic portal could be a solution regarding measurements on the wear and tear of the construction materials. How this may be done? Thanks to the development of such advanced sensors and devices which Bosch Rexroth would be able to be active in this specific application fields. Due to these developments, it would be possible to measure the behaviour of a bridge or a construction after the installation and, periodically, remake these measures through this enhanced system having in real time the situation of the bridge or construction. A dedicated software might give indication on the actions which should be done in order to obtain the maximum reliability of the bridge or construction. Furthermore, being the bridge or the construction connected to a wide kind of sensors, it would be possible to acquire and store, like and aircraft black box, or transmit data even during an exceptional event like an earthquake.
