Proper monitoring and maintenance of bridges are crucial for the well being of the society. A university-industry collaborative project supported by the Ontario Centers of Excellence in Canada focuses on researching and developing a resource management middleware for unifying resources distributed across the country to provide the necessary sharing of and inter-operability among diverse resources for bridge infrastructure management. This paper proposes a network-based solution and describes the system architecture devised as well as the choice of technology made for implementing key components.
