Advanced Infrastructure Monitoring Laboratory opens

AIM LabThe inspection and maintenance of aging civil infrastructure poses major challenges for engineers in the 21st century.  Dr. David Lattanzi‘s  Advanced Infrastructure Monitoring (AIM) Laboratory, which opened this February at George Mason, is designed to provide researchers the tools they need to develop next-generation solutions to these problems. The AIM laboratory houses a variety of non-destructive evaluation (NDE) equipment, as well as purpose-built facilities for the design and construction of inspection robots.  The laboratory also offers high-performance computing capabilities and in-house image analysis software. As AIM Lab director, Dr. Lattanzi, looks forward to working with students in the lab on a variety of research initiatives, including drone-based bridge inspection and 3D printed structures.
