UK: Researchers from the UK’s University of Nottingham have partenred with the European Space Agency (ESA) to explore methods for the real-time monitoring of movements in large-scale bridge structures by means of satellite navigation sensors. The researchers chose Scotland’s Forth Road Bridge as their testing site for the new technology, given its significant increase in traffic levels over recent decades, as well as the region’s heavy winds.
