The periodic inspection of manholes’ structural integrity is crucial to prevent costly and potentially hazardous damages. However, the traditional method of sending operators in for direct visual inspection can quickly become a big expenditure and also inefficiently allocates resources that are often scarce and required for other important tasks.In order to efficiently integrate a regular manhole inspection program, municipalities need a fast and effective solution that will allow them to perform a full survey of their manhole network while maintaining the impact on their manpower as low as possible.
It is precisely to tackle this problem that the RV-Pro 360 manhole inspection system has been developed, a powerful tool which allows a single unspecialized operator to inspect up to 80 manholes per day. Moreover, the full sphere of 360° video data captured during the inspection can be offloaded to external analysts rather than being analyzed onsite by the camera operator, allowing maximum uptime in the field.
Moreover, the impact of traffic is greatly reduced as inspections are performed promptly and from the underside, not requiring the traffic on the bridge (which is generally higher than the one under it) to be stopped at all.
