CalTrans Developing New Scour Assessment Methods Using Inertial Navigation and GPS

Bathymetric surveying under bridges represents a major challenge as a result of the partial or total obstruction of the view of GPS / GNSS satellites used for positioning. As the survey boat gets close to the bridge, position quality is first degraded and then shortly afterwards completely lost. To overcome this problem, non-GPS solutions are used such as optical positioning …
