Digital Imaging for Condition Asset Monitoring (DIFCAM) satisfies the demand for a safe, efficient and automated method of carrying out basic visual inspections.

Developed initially to give safer access to rail tunnels, it can be adapted to carry out inspections on other types of networks or structures. DIFCAM effectively eliminates the risk of manual inspections in hazardous environments, massively reducing costs over time.

The system captures a complete visual record of almost any structure, as well as a 3D model. Using a high-grade inertial guidance platform, these datasets combine to produce a high quality 3D representation of the asset as well as indexing the raw data for later analysis.

This data builds into a historic record which can be continually compared and analysed, identifying changes in the location. Any potential new defects or deterioration, for example cracks, spalling or bulging, are pin pointed quickly and safely.

Our DIFCAM platform demonstrates world-class application of optical technology, resulting in: improved safety, faster inspections and more cost effective asset maintenance.
