The process of inspecting tunnel lining concrete by analyzing images used to take four days.
But by applying technology that automatically detects the presence of abnormalities,
the process was shortened by 75% to only one day.
In addition, our software prevented omissions that were previously prevented by having engineers double-check each other’s work, thereby improving work efficiency and accuracy.
“By automatically detecting anomalies from 3D radar images, we have been able to support engineers and improve the speed and quality of the process. In the future, we plan to deploy this technology in radar exploration for roads and bridges. We will continue to develop inspection technologies that can improve the efficiency of investigations, inspections, and maintenance. We will also propose advanced inspection services to meet customer needs and increase customer satisfaction.”
