Bridge health monitoring using information technology and sensors is capable
of providing more accurate knowledge of bridge performance than traditional
strategies. Therefore, advanced research works and international collaboration
are needed to establish the practical bridge health monitoring system.
The SIMO Project Group at VTT Technical Research Center, Finland and the
Research Center for Environmental Safety(RCES) of Yamaguchi University
has agreed each other to organize a Joint Seminar for discussing/sharing
research ideas and the latest topics related to bridge health monitoring.
We believe that the Seminar might make an excellent opportunity to discuss
the new challenges of future international collaborations.
