InfraMation is quickly approaching, and with so many great presentations, workshops and clinics available, it’s going to be tough to fit them all in. Aside from our 3 keynote speakers (Casey Anderson, Corbett Lundsford, and Jan Gasparic), we’ve highlighted a few presentations that you’ll want to check out.
1. UAV Applications for Thermographers, presented David Weisman
Drones have exploded on the technology scene, but what do they have to do with thermography? David Weisman, co-founder of J-D-Eye LLC, introduces attendees to a number of areas where thermography and UAVs already intersect.
2. Thermal Imaging Bat Surveys, presented by Kayleigh Fawcett
Bats are vital to natural ecosystems and human economies, but their populations are threatened globally, largely due to human activities. Kayleigh Fawcett is a senior ecologist specializing in bats, and she’s a big believer in the power of thermal imaging, as a non-invasive method for observing bat populations. Kayleigh will walk attendees through the advantages thermal imaging provides in her academic research projects.
3. Bridge Deck Scanning Using Infrared Thermography, presented by Masato Matsumoto
Did you know that when bridge inspectors determine the conditions of structures, it’s usually subjective? It all depends on individual inspector knowledge and experience, along with varying field conditions. It’s not exactly a comforting thought, considering people depend on bridges to be safe to drive on. That’s why Masato and his team at NEXCO-West started researching whether infrared cameras might be a more effective means for bridge inspection. Masato will take attendees through the process of the research project and the exciting results.
