#33 Evaluation of emerging technologies for remote inspections of building work

Remote building inspections are expected to reduce the time and travel needs required by traditional in-person inspections while maintaining (or enhancing) the integrity and rigor of the inspection process and outcome. However, the effectiveness and suitability of technologies for remote building inspections are not fully understood and rigorously evaluated.

This project aims to:
1) review best remote inspection practices
2) evaluate digital technologies for remote building inspections
3) develop a guideline for the effective implementation of suitable technologies for remote building inspections.

Outcomes from this project are expected to guide the implementation of technologies and workflows for remote building inspection.  

Researchers on project include: Dr Yihai Fang, Eric Windholz, Kourosh Khoshelham, Tuan Ngo, Tanghan
Jiang, Jimmy Weng & Sajjad Einizinab.
