Using new techniques to improve transportation safety.
David Lattanzi is a licensed bridge engineer who puts his professional experience to work in the development of the next generation of infrastructure inspection technologies. Responding to the crisis of our nation’s aging infrastructure, Lattanzi’s group focuses on a multidisciplinary combination of data analytics, robotics, artificial intelligence, and structural engineering to help civil engineers make safer and more reliable life-cycle assessements. Some of his current initiatives include the use of digital image analysis for rapid post-disaster assessments and how to combine autonomous robotic inspection with ultra-high resolution 3D imaging to create virtual worlds for inspectors.
