IT Program Tackles Drone Technologies

hen you want a cloud-computing service at work, you call IT. But who do you contact to integrate a company drone into daily operations? That may not be an everyday problem now, but unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) are quickly becoming a reality for many businesses. And that’s where the Information Technology Program at Mizzou Engineering is stepping up.

Lifetime of Service

Ultrasound. Ground penetrating radar. Thermal imaging. You probably don’t think of these Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) technologies as necessary tools for bridge inspections. But Glenn Washer, professor of civil and environmental engineering, has conducted research that proves these technologies greatly enhance condition assessment of bridges, leading to improved inspections that help prevent accidents and collapses.
