Stereo-graphic viewing through Virtual Reality (VR) is proposed as an enhancement technique for visual inspection of structures. By immersing the inspector into a VR environment, 3-D images of defects on structural components can be viewed without losing any depth-related information. This visual enhancement can be implemented with automated imaging to remotely capture real-time images of the bridge components, and transmit to the Virtual Environment lab for viewing and data analysis. This paper presents the preliminary study and discusses the potential application of this technique.
