A low power wireless sensor network for structural health monitoring

WithJ. Meyer, R. Bischoff, G. Feltrin & O. Saukh

This paper presents a prototype monitoring system for civil structures composed of a wireless sensor network for data acquisition, a database holding the collected data and various tools allowing the user to access and evaluate the aggregated data and to configure the different components of the monitoring system. A prototype system for monitoring stay cable forces has been implemented on the scaled cable stayed pedestrian bridge at Empa.
