Amy has been invited to join the event as a panel member and will also be hosting a workshop for the event, which takes place across the 26th and 27th May.
Amy has over 15 years’ experience in the engineering industry, delivering projects across the rail, logistics and infrastructure landscape.
Amy leads Waldeck’s Digital Capture delivery across the business, effectively and efficiently collaborating with clients and project teams alike to ensure all UAV and terrestrial survey operations are conducted in-line with regulatory and project-based requirements.
Amy has worked on a number of technically challenging projects for Network Rail and most recently has been actively supporting the bridge inspections R&D team with their aspirations to move towards a digital approach.
Amy is also a qualified Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) Operator, with several years’ experience in undertaking digital capture across a broad range of complex environments.
Amy’s workshop ‘Digital technology for inspections and monitoring’ will be taking place on Day 1 of the event from 13:40 – 14:40, showcasing the digital capture and asset management work Waldeck have been carrying out for Network Rail’s portfolio of bridges:
Network Rail manage a large portfolio of bridge structures across the network that require continued and varying levels of examination, assessment, maintenance and repair/renewal. Methods for recording and monitoring of structures condition are subjective which leads to inconsistencies in the reports received.
The desire is to move towards a more digital approach which enables a more context-based and holistic view of the asset and its surrounding environment; reliable/measurable/comparable and non-subjective data on assets; data driven workflows and deliverables to facilitate detailed analysis and reporting; and an enabler to facilitate future aspirations to use artificial intelligence for defect recognition.
During the workshop delegates will be encouraged to discuss current approaches, including their limitations and shortcomings, as well as consider future needs and potential technologies that could improve existing practices.
