Global Smart Bridges Market Overview:
Smart bridge is a type of smart infrastructure incorporated with multiple sensing or data acquisition hardware to monitor various parameters including traffic influx, load on the bridge, stress induced on pillars or strain on the suspension cables, thermal stress and so on. The data so collected is processed by a central control unit for traffic management and condition monitoring. On the occurrence of any failure symptoms on the bridge the system detects location of critically so that it can be subjected to proper maintenance and prevents catastrophic failure. Some of the key players profiled in the study are IBM Corporation (United States), Cisco Systems Inc (United States), Kapsch TrafficCom (Austria), Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd (China), Alcatel-Lucent (France), Cargill Inc. (United States), Royal DSM N.V. (The Netherlands), Ajinomoto Co Inc. (Japan), Jungbunzlauer AG (Switzerland) and Innophos Holding Inc. (United States).
