Towards Automated Structural Health Monitoring for Offshore Wind Piles
Simulation plays an important role in the development, testing and evaluation of new robotic applications, reducing implementation time, cost and risk. In this paper we show a digital twin simulation model of an inspection ROV which is capable of performing structural health monitoring by automated creation of a map of an offshore wind monopile. The data is compared to a known reference model. The digital twin simulation model is extended by a physical sensor data input device to bridge the gap between simulation and testing in water.
