New Technologies for Geotechnical Infrastructure Sensing and Monitoring Short Course

January 22-23 2021, the UC Berkeley Faculty of the Geosystems group are offering a 2-day short course on "New Technologies for Geotechnical Infrastructure Sensing and Monitoring". The course will  provide a review of some of the latest technologies that are about to, or are already impacting the way we design, maintain, or operate geo-infrastructure and the way we manage risk. Technologies to be discussed are sensor-equipped Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (or drones), 3D model creation using optical (Structure-from-Motion) and LiDAR, infrared sensing, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), wireless sensing fundamentals, ShapeArray Accelerometers and distributed sensing using fiber optics.
The instructors have significant expertise in the technologies presented and will outline the principles of operation and the advantages and disadvantages, as well as share examples of projects where these technologies have been successfully implemented.

Due to COVID, the course will be offered this year online, but can also accommodate participants in all time zones by making the recorded lectures available online.

More information, and registration (until January 15, until capacity is reached), for this course can be found here:
