Technopolis science park for high-tech start-ups had a first this summer. In early June, four plastic bridges were taken into use, fitted with lots of sensors. Although the start-up company MOCS had already supplied plastic bridges, the bridges and platforms behind the YesDelft building are the
first with built-in sensors to measure strain, vibration, load and temperature. The sensors can be read remotely and are expected to provide a good  impression of the technical condition of the bridges.
Managers can also use temperature readings to decide when to grit the road surface.
