ISRAEL - Solution Preventing Bridge and Tunnel Disasters

Arno Froese

In the past couple of years, collapsed bridges have killed people in Florida, China, Chile, Italy, Myanmar and Taiwan. [In just one month,] more than seven people were killed when bridges collapsed in China and Taiwan, while in Genoa, last summer, 39 people died.

People responsible for the health of bridges, tunnels and elevated highways can now see a real-time, cloud-based, 3D “medical report” thanks to technology invented at Israeli startup Dynamic Infrastructure.

The company’s proprietary deep-learning image analysis compares daily images of the structure with older images extracted from past periodic inspections.

The diagnostic report can be accessed on a regular browser and shared with peers and contractors to make maintenance workflows more efficient. An automatic alert is sent if potentially dangerous changes are detected.

Dynamic Infrastructure has contracts with departments of transportation, public-private partnerships (PPPs) and private companies in the United States, Germany, Switzerland, Greece and Israel. These clients operate a total of 30,000 assets.

Like humans, bridges go through a “childhood” of several years while under construction, and they are built to last about 80 to 90 years.

But unlike humans, bridges don’t have an ongoing medical record to provide valuable information to those tasked with maintaining their health.

“You have periodic inspections, but no one is taking the entire history and analyzing it to tell the larger story from the operation and maintenance perspective. When you put these details into a single picture, you can make a very data-driven decision in line with budgets,” says Saar Dickman, cofounder and CEO of Dynamic Infrastructure., 28 October 2019

Arno's commentary

Unceasingly, Israel comes up with new technology, inventions and theories urgently needed for our modern, technological world. Bridges and tunnels age; thus, they need, “medical attention,” an automatic alert system.

When one follows Israel’s continuous achievements, it becomes crystal clear that the nations of the world will be dependent upon Israel more and more as time goes by.

And yet, in the end, the nations of the world—full of fury—will attempt to destroy Israel. Revelation 16:14 documents: “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” Notice the words “whole world.”

It seems an error by many scholars and ministers of the gospel, when emphasizing certain nations only when dealing with the prophetic Word. Those nations are the ones that the news media have indoctrinated the population to dislike. Hollywood has contributed to it greatly.

We reiterate, there are only three kinds of nations in the world: one is Israel; the second is the Church of Jesus Christ—consisting exclusively of born-again believers the world over; and the third category is the rest of the world. It does not matter which political philosophy applies, whether communism, capitalism, socialism, dictatorship, etc. Because, in the end, Revelation 13 documents: “…and all the world wondered after the beast…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him” (Revelation 13:3b, 8a).
