Traditional condition evaluation is expensive. An alternative is Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) which is a non-contact approach that safe, fast, and applicable to a range of weather conditions. This paper reviews applications of TLS on bridge measurement involving geometric documentation, surface defect determination, and corrosion evaluation, and crack identification. Currently, most post-processing of TLS is manual or within third party software. This paper discusses potential approaches to automatic post-processing.||Funding Details:||European Research Council||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE)||Keywords:||LiDAR;Terrestrial laser scanning;Point cloud;Bridge inspection||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||37th IABSE Symposium: Engineering for Progress, Nature and People, Madrid, Spain, 3 - 5 September 2014|
