Remote, Ultra-Low Power Wireless Sensing System for Multimetric Self-Powered Monitoring of Bridge Components

Project Information

Project ID: 
FHWA-PROJ-13-0088
Project Abstract: 

Development of a multimetric sensing system and data interpretation procedures for determining damage identification and quantification dramatically transform the economics of bridge preservation/management and improve the serviceability of bridges. The system will consist of a network of low-cost sensors attached to critical bridge components. Each sensor node is self-powered and capable of continuously monitoring and storing the dynamic strain, acceleration, and frequency response in the host structure.

Goals:

Health monitoring of the structures.
