Wireless Instrumentation for Monitoring of Smart Structures

Abstract:

Article Preview

Smart structures needs lots of sensor installation to sense their status and also the external environmental change. Wireless technique can give a good solution to install sensors without heavy cables. So, in this work, a wireless device was developed to transmit static strain and elastic wave propagation of structures. The specification of this device was as follows: 2.4 GHz of transmitted frequency, 8 channels, 57,600 bps of the transmitted speed, and 10 mW of the transmitted power. In order to confirm the wireless device’s feasibility, a beam test was performed with five optical fiber strain sensors and two piezo-ceramic sensors with the wireless instrumentation.
