Sunshine Skyway Bridge Monitoring Phase 1: System Assessment and Integration Recommendations

The objectives of Phase I are to: (1) fully identify, assess, and understand the condition and challenges of the existing monitoring sensors currently (or soon-to-be) installed on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge by the FOOT and other organizations, (2) engage all stakeholders (current and past) to determine the intent of the currently installed hardware and the desired features of an upgraded system, and (3) investigate effective methods for collecting, processing, and using data from the bridge, including the integration of advanced data management and bridge modelling technique. The result of Phase I will be a comprehensive set of recommendations for upgrading the Sunshme Skyway Bridge monitoring system to achieve the long term goals of the research and meet the ongoing needs of the FOOT Skyway maintenance office.
