WIRELESS INSPECTION DATABASE ACCESS FOR FIELD ENGINEERS
Abstract:Keeping track of, maintaining access to, and compiling field engineering inspection records is time consuming and untimely. Engineers can easily design a desktop field inspection database, and, utilizing off-the-shelf hardware and software, develop a hand-held wireless solution that keeps the client and the engineer up-to-date with daily inspection metrics. In addition, engineers can easily scale the software/hardware solution to fit within the client's needs and budget. This paper examines the development of a wireless inspection database and presents the results of implementation of the system in field inspections conducted during a demolition project. In addition, application of this technology is explored in maintaining field records of collection system maintenance activities, including manhole, pipe and pump station inspections.
