The ANDERS joint venture project gave birth to a bridge-deck repair robot that complements the RABIT™ inspection tool developed with FHWA. Together they are revolutionizing how we monitor, preserve, and repair bridge decks more quickly and efficiently.
Bridge engineers nationwide confirm that the overwhelming majority of budgets allocated for bridge maintenance and rehabilitation are spent on bridge decks.
The Automated Nondestructive Evaluation and Rehabilitation System (ANDERS) for Bridge Decks project is working on ways to reduce the high cost of bridge deck maintenance and repairs by developing a suite of technologies that will provide a comprehensive solution. ANDERS hopes to revolutionize how overall bridge inspection, monitoring, assessment, and remediation are done.
ANDERS is a university-industry joint venture led by Rutgers’ CAIT.
