Monitoring the health of a civil structure is essential for tracking aging, observing any structural change and preventing collapses, especially for structures subject to stress, such as bridges, dams or historical architectures.
With a network of IoT sensors, it is possible to set up practically any structure and monitor it remotely 24 hours a day.
The goal is to be able to monitor any structure with an easy-to-install, low-cost battery-powered wireless sensor system. There is no need to lay wiring, and it is possible to leave devices on the structure for years and collect a large amount of data to model its behaviour.
The characteristics of the solution to achieve are the following:
- Innovative sensors for measuring all the main parameters of the structure
- High precision
- Competitive prices
- LoRa® wireless transmission core
- Battery-powered, long life and no wiring
- Ability to observe and understand vibration behaviour over time
These characteristics provide the opportunity to have under control the managed structures, and with a negligible cost compared to that of the structure to avoid dangerous failures.
