 Project objective

The monitoring of structures is one of the ultimate challenges to engineering companies today. Ageing and increasing number of extreme events (e.g. earthquakes or strong wind) are degrading the long-term performance of the structures. A collapse or closure of structure can lead to chaos, significant financial losses, and, in some cases, heavy casualties. The recent collapse of the Morandi bridge (Genoa, Italy) due to ageing structures and poor maintenance led to 43 deaths and €600 million loss. Whereas, a single-lane closure of the Forth Road Bridge in Scotland due to the safety risk caused a €734k loss daily. Unfortunately, the current solutions are expensive, slow and unreliable, leading to ineffective monitoring and reduced number of analysis. In Italy, only ¼ of the schools have been examined for the seismic resistance. The currently adopted techniques request the installation of permanent devices on the structure to be monitored, implying: high installation and monitoring costs, time-consuming monitoring and low versatility. VG360 is a digital non-contact measurement system for the structural monitoring of large structures and geotechnical engineering projects. During the feasibility assessment, a minimum viable product will be defined, a go-to-market strategy and a supply chain will be established, as well as further development plan will be drafted. Within the overall innovation project, Imetrum needs to customise VG360 for two different RTS applications; setup a production line; and carry out 6-month pilot with three secured civil engineering companies leading to the system validation.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "VG360" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
