Abstract In this project, University of Central Florida researchers devised and installed a comprehensive monitoring system on Sunrise Bridge (a bascule bridge in Ft. Lauderdale) to track the behavior and condition of several critical mechanical, electrical, and structural components. Monitoring the bridge yielded a wide variety of data, which were analyzed with methods developed by the research team. Collected data were compared with ongoing maintenance logs to understand the data's correlation with maintenance events, helping to identify the most pertinent data.
