  Introduction of Special Edition
  We need to understand innovative technologies correctly and clarify the issues facing their introduction in maintenance activities. One of the chief objective of this Special Edition is to organize and introduce this information, and promote understanding of readers by translating the Feature Article of JSCE magazine.
Future vision for infrastructure maintenance Development of material technologies
  This article describes the changes that technologies can bring to inspection practices and mentions current challenges which need to be addressed for the diffusion and widespread adoption of these technologies.   This article describes the investigation contents of the mechanisms of structural deterioration due to salt damage and of the R&D on damage detection technologies and long-life materials.
  Use of ICT in infrastructure maintenance   Robotics in infrastructure maintenance
  This article introduces R&D on data management infrastructure and utilization of 3-D data as well as the development of a shared data platform.   This article summarizes the R&D projects related to robotic technologies that have been implemented by SIP up to FY 2016.
Data assimilation and the infrastructure management cycle International promotion and human resource development

  This article describes the strategic technology of setting up a portal site for inspection and diagnosis based on the PDCA cycle for individual infrastructure.   This article focuses on international promotion activities under a project in which the authors are participating, which is a comprehensive study for development of the road infrastructure management cycle and its domestic and overseas implementation.
