What is Infrastructure Monitoring ?
Road dealers have a large number of artifacts to monitor in relation to the state of use and the degree of deterioration of the infrastructure. However, sensors applied to road infrastructures, whether bridges, spans, viaducts, are not enough on their own. The disaster that occurred with the collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Genoa teaches this. So what to do?
How does Infrastructure Monitoring for T.net work?
T.net has implemented specialized software algorithms which, using both dynamic weighing systems and sensors (crackmeters, inclinometers, accelerometers) aggregate data in the form of event logs from the entire organization infrastructure and detect anomalies by providing to the managers of the compromise indices of the infrastructure itself. The event logs are automatically generated by the system both in response to the volume of network traffic and in relation to the application of exceptional transits which are used as “natural” stress systems. These log files contain information such as the time and date when the event occurred, the vehicle or the weather situation that generated the anomaly, the tag of the artifact, a unique identifier, the origin of the event and a description of the event type. This is combined with the IoC (Indicator of compromise of the infrastructure), which gives an estimate of the “health” of the road infrastructure under monitoring. Some log files may contain additional information depending on the application they originated from and the number of sensors used.
Using this type of infrastructure monitoring, Road Dealers can detect operational problems, identify possible security breaches or damaged systems and identify the most appropriate intervention areas by planning maintenance activities.
